'Buying And Selling Government Contracting Companies'

It's not your run-of-the-mill merger or buy/sell transaction when you set out to acquire, sell or merge with a company that is a government contractor. This issue was the focus last month of a seminar titled Buying and Selling Government Contracting Companies presented by the firm of Kelley Drye and Warren LLP as part of its Northern Virginia/Washington, DC breakfast seminar series.

At the October 13 program, a Kelley Drye attorney and three seasoned executives discussed the unique landscape that executives encounter on the road to completing a successful transaction. The session focused on recent real-world experiences and the perspectives of these industry leaders, who currently are involved in a number of transactions involving government contracts.

Speakers at this program included Mark C. Fuller, Chesapeake Partners, Inc.; Todd W. Rowley, Wachovia Corporation; Steven W. Ritterbush, Fairfax Partners, Inc., and Joseph Hoffman, Kelley Drye.

The next seminar in the series, New Federal Wage, Hour & Overtime Regulations, is scheduled for Friday, November 12 from 8 to 10 a.m. at the Hilton McLean Hotel in Tysons Corner, VA. Speakers for this session are still to be announced.

There is no registration fee for the breakfast sessions. To register for the November 12 program, call Andrea Essex at (703) 918-2329 or e-mail aessex@kelleydrye.com.
