Join us as Gunjan Talati and Chris Henel from Kilpatrick Townsend discuss the future of defense contracting. 

2017 is turning out to be a very consequential year for the defense department. The Trump administration has placed high priority on defense, installing new leadership and committing to provide billions in new defense spending. This intersection of opportunity and change at the DoD will be sure to keep contractors on their toes. 

Speakers Gunjan Talati and Christian Henel of Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton will discuss the recent developments at the DoD, with a focus on cybersecurity, ethics and regulatory compliance, auditing, procurement, and performance assessment. They’ll provide updates on what’s new and provide guidance on how contractors and public employees can work together to achieve positive and mutually beneficial outcomes. 

This program is not available for CLE, CPE, CLP or other credits as a live program.
