Jones Day Hosts Business Seminar In Washingon, DC

Monday, May 2, 2011 - 01:00

Join Jones Day on Wednesday, June 22, for Growing Your Business: How to Handle Regulatory Hurdles Both Before and After They Arise at the offices of Jones Day located at 51 Louisiana Avenue, NW in Washington, DC. It runs from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and breakfast will be served.

In today's post-recession economic environment, both small and large businesses are exploring ways to grow through mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, franchising, licensing deals and new product launches. Whether growth is organic or inorganic, these businesses often face a series of heightened legal and regulatory hurdles in pursing this strategy. To be successful, a business needs a legal team that fully understands its business goals to handle all the issues, such as deal making, capital formation, intellectual property, antitrust, product liability, government regulation and litigation.

Panelists David P. Wales, Andrew J. Sherman, Alan J. Schaeffer, and Paul L. Sharer of Jones Day will discuss selecting the best strategies to achieve growth.

A second panel includes Norman Armstrong, Jr., deputy director of the Bureau of Competition at the Federal Trade Commission, and Leslie C. Overton and Michael H. Knight, partners at Jones Day, who will advise participants on how to manage antitrust issues when they arise.
