Entering into business or other types of agreements with federal, state or local government entities can be fraught with compliance concerns, including those related to strict liability pay-to-play laws that prohibit contracting if the contractor (or in some cases a company executive or employee) makes certain political contributions. Seeking government business may also incur an obligation to register under applicable lobby law or raise legal issues addressed under other laws intended to prohibit unethical behavior or conflicts of interest in the procurement process. 

Presented by Skadden political law associate Theodore Grodek, this program provides general guidance and best practices for developing robust compliance programs and creating required compliance certifications. The course will benefit in-house attorneys who oversee bidding as well as those involved in government relations. 

Learning Objectives: 

Identify political law considerations that may impact a company's ability to enter into government contracts.

Discuss pay-to-play, lobbying and procurement laws to consider when attempting to obtain government business.

Provide high-level guidance on robust compliance processes.
