Lobbying without a Lobby: The Challenge of Government Relations During a Pandemic, Why You Need Help with Government, and Lobbying Ethics

October 6, 2020

How do you engage with government when it’s working remotely?  The pandemic has demonstrated the need for business lawyers to seek assistance from those with access (even when offices are closed) to government officials on a wide variety of issues including obtaining financial relief for companies and nonprofits, receiving essential business designations, advancing legislation, and determining whether to reopen.  This webinar will help you determine how to best access these resources in advance of and after the upcoming crucial November election, as well as understand the reporting obligations and ethics of interacting with government.
