In the wake of the 2016 Presidential Election, more companies and individuals are becoming engaged in the political process. It is becoming increasingly difficult to expect your company’s officers, directors, shareholders and employees to sit on the sidelines. Join Genova Burns LLC partner Rebecca Moll Freed, Esq., head of the Corporate Political Activity Law Group, for developing a strategy for Political Activity Compliance.
In-house counsel, corporate compliance officers, and governmental affairs agents are frequently involved in developing and implementing their company’s compliance program as it relates to political contributions, pay-to-play laws, lobbying rules and gifts and entertainment.
This program will focus on the pitfalls that in-house counsel, corporate compliance officers, and governmental affairs agents face when trying to develop and implement a company-wide corporate political activity compliance policy.
Ms. Freed advises corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, trade associations, charitable organizations, social welfare organizations and political action committees on the legal aspects of their political activities.
Ms. Freed has substantial experience with New Jersey’s pay-to-play laws; she has lectured frequently on the topic, and written extensively on the issue as well, including articles for New Jersey Lawyer, New Jersey League of Municipalities Magazine, and New Jersey Law Journal.
Ms. Freed also has extensive experience in procurement law, assisting clients in the preparation of RFPs and RFQs on the state and local levels. She has represented numerous clients in bid protest disputes before administrative agencies and before the Appellate Division of New Jersey Superior Court.
As Director of the firm’s Corporate Political Activity Group, the Non-Profit and Tax Exempt Organization Practice Group and Vendor Political Activity & Ethics Compliance Training & Audit Programs, Ms. Freed provides training and counseling to companies, in-house counsel and corporate ethics and compliance officers who seek to maximize government contracting opportunities while assuring compliance with the law.
Ms. Freed serves as co-Chair of the firm’s Strategic Planning Committee. From 2013 to 2015, Ms. Freed served as co-Chair of the firm’s Inclusionary Initiative, which encompasses the firm’s Women’s Initiative and Diversity Initiative. The Inclusionary Initiative focuses on the common goal of fostering better lawyers and serving our clients’ needs.
