  Webinar: ITAR for Government Contractors - New Developments for 2018 Register Here Webinar 12.13.2017 1:00pm — 12.13.2017 2:00pm

Join Thomas McVey, partner and chair of Williams Mullen’s International Practice Group, for a complimentary webinar on the latest ITAR developments for government contracts executives.

ITAR is an important area of regulation for government contractors.  This includes firms in the defense, technical services, information technology, cyber-security, military training and DOD-funded R&D fields.  These requirements often apply even if a company is not engaged in any exporting activities – often just performing activities in the U.S. can trigger ITAR obligations.  The stakes are high – violations can result in criminal penalties of up to 20 years imprisonment. 

Our program will provide executives a clear overview of the law and an update on important recent developments.

Who Should Attend: CEOs, CFOs, COOs, in-house counsel, compliance personnel, operations directors and contracts administrators
