The legal risks facing mid-to-small-sized corporations in the aerospace and defense industry are both varied and palpable. Whether dealing with international export/import compliance, locating risks in contracts, or protecting invaluable intellectual property (often the economic life blood of companies within this space), the laundry list of legal issues is seemingly endless. And while the challenges are indeed vast, the job of an in-house attorney in this industry is incredibly rewarding. Our Webinar will not only locate and distill some of these major legal challenges, but will also shed light on how one can get her or his foot in the proverbial door into this exciting and continuously evolving industry.
Speakers: Robert Cave and Margrette Francisco.
