Government Contracting 101: The Risks of Having Uncle Sam as a Customer

Presented by Jonathan Aronie, Partner, Sheppard Mullin

Meeting Number: 711 681 119
Meeting Password: (This meeting does not require a password.)
Through strong economies and weak, the federal Government continues to spend money. A lot of money. And much of it goes to federal contractors. Of course, federal monies come with federal obligations, and sadly the newspapers (and court dockets) are filled  with companies who have focused on the former, but paid inadequate attention to the latter. This webinar will discuss the key risk areas inherent in contracting with the federal Government, as well as the best practices to mitigate those risks. The issues will be discussed in the context of a current Government contractor, as well as a company looking to break into the federal marketplace either organically or through acquisition.
