Strategic Alliances: Leveraging Joint Venture, Teaming and Mentor Protégé Relationships While Avoiding Common Pitfalls
Government contractors large and small frequently engage in strategic alliances in order to leverage the parties' experience, expertise and resources in federal procurements. Before entering into such arrangements, prudent government contractors will fully assess the legal and business implications of the Joint Venture, Teaming, and Mentor-Protégé relationships they form.
Counsel, and often the SBA itself, can help contractors navigate these challenging decisions. In this program, the panelists discuss how to guide government contractor clients in understanding the nature of their relationships, empowering them to leverage the strength of the alliance and helping them avoid common pitfalls.
This program was offered on September 13, 2012 in cooperation with the Young Lawyers Committee of the ABA Section of Public Contract Law. Members of the Committee, the Section, and the contracting community attended the program in person at Holland & Knight's Northern Virginia office.
