Consumer protection regulation is causing significant uncertainty among many within the retail and consumer products industry. Knowing regulation trends and what regulators are thinking is critical to minimizing a company's risk profile. Holland & Knight's experience has found that many companies want to get it right. However, simply being compliant is not "winning" at compliance. A company needs to have its "finger on the pulse" so it is ready for whatever comes its way and is able to potentially avoid a costly enforcement action.

Holland & Knight, the National Bar Association Commercial Law Section (NBA-CLS) and the Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA) are pleased to host this dynamic half-day seminar that will provide tips to prepare your company for what the future may hold.
