government buildingAs a part of our unrivaled commitment to government relations compliance expertise, we are attending the Practising Law Institute’s seminar, Corporate Political Activities 2014: Complying With Campaign Finance, Lobbying and Ethics Laws.

The full schedule includes coverage of issues such as federal and state lobbying laws, gift laws, and corporate political contributions. PLI has gathered first-rate presenters such as Lee Goodman and Ann Ravel of the Federal Election Commission, as well as many others from state ethics agencies and corporate compliance.

Why are we taking the time to attend PLI’s Corporate Political Activities 2014?

As their website states: “Lobbying, campaign finance and ethics rules in Washington, and in every state, are changing, and new court cases are affecting lobbyists, corporations, associations, and unions. Compliance with federal, state and local laws is more complex than ever.”

Compliance is more complex than ever – and we are making sure we have it covered.
