Sheppard Mullin will be launching in 2012 a series of luncheon seminars to be held at its offices in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles, California, on topics of ongoing (and increasing) importance to Government contractors. These seminars will provide the opportunity for attendees to receive an informed 90-minute presentation on relevant legal issues, and the opportunity for interactive dialogue with our lawyers and MCLE credit, all in the informal setting of a lunch in Sheppard Mullin’s offices. 

The specific schedule for the seminars will be posted at a later date. We plan, however, to host seven seminars, on the following topics:

  • "Anatomy of a Bid Protest"
  • "Government Contracting in Budget-Challenged Times — Special Concerns for the Government Contractor When Dollars Become Scarce"
  • "Organizational Conflicts of Interest — What Are They, Where Have We Been, and Where Are the New Regulations Taking You?"
  • "So You Just Received a Subpoena — Now What?"
  • "The Government Wants Your Intellectual Property — How It Gets It and What You Need to Know to Prevent It"
  • E-Mail – The Limitless Power of the “Send” Key
  • "A Guide for the Preparation of Claims Against the Government — How to Spot, Preserve, and Perfect Claims to Maximize Your Rightful Revenue Under a Government Contract"

Invitations will be sent separately for each seminar. We ALSO welcome suggestions concerning other possible topics of interest.
