Government contracting is a complex field of law, and can present attorneys with unique ethical challenges. This program, presented by Claude M. Millman of Kostelanetz & Fink, LLP, introduces many of the ethical issues that arise when companies do business with government agencies. Topics to be covered include gifts, entertainment, and favors when dealing with public servants; dealing with public servants with dual positions, or those who misuse their positions; managing "revolving door" employment; and handling endorsements from governments.
