The Legal Advisor is a newsletter distributed by the firm to our clients, friends and business contacts. The publication addresses current issues that are of concern to federal government contractors and commercial businesses nationwide. The articles focus on recent legal trends, court decisions, legislative and regulatory rule-making and other newsworthy events. The articles often emphasize practical tips that businesses should consider in complying with recent changes in the law, as well as preventative measures that can be taken to minimize legal problems.

The topics in the Legal Advisor focus primarily on corporate and business matters, federal contracting, employment law, intellectual property and electronic commerce. We encourage our readers to communicate their views to us on the Legal Advisor and to suggest issues they would like to see addressed. While we hope that the Legal Advisor will serve to better educate our clientele and other readers on matters that could affect their businesses, it is not the intent of the publication to provide legal advice to clients on particular matters.

The Legal Advisor is distributed on a complimentary basis. If you have any questions, please feel free to phone the Editor, Jon Williams, at (202)857-1000 or Contact Us.
