Find Us at Expo West

Because the evolving legal and regulatory landscape affects our industry in unprecedented ways, Expo West has partnered with Venable to provide you with an opportunity to sit down with one of our attorneys in a one-on-one meeting* to discuss the legal issues facing your business. To participate, submit a “request for consultation” to ask questions about such issues as FTC and FDA regulatory challenges, advertising, marketing and labeling/packaging, competitor challenges, supply chain, intellectual property protection, state and federal investigations, and enforcement. 

*These consultations are not intended to create an attorney-client relationship. Any advice may be given only when it is related to specific fact situations that Venable has accepted an engagement as counsel to address.
