Official Legal And Regulatory Partner

Because the evolving legal and regulatory landscape affects our industry in unprecedented ways, SupplySide West has once again partnered with Venable LLP to provide you with an opportunity to sit down with one of our attorneys in a one-on-one meeting to discuss the legal issues facing your business. To participate, submit a "request for consultation" to ask questions about such issues as regulatory challenges, intellectual property protection, state and federal investigations, and enforcement.

These consultations are not intended to create an attorney-client relationship. Any advice may be given only when it is related to specific fact situations that Venable has accepted an engagement as counsel to address.

The meeting area will be located at the entry to the Expo Hall in a custom-built office space.

Hours of operation:

Thursday, November 8: 10am-5:30pm
Friday, November 9: 10:30am-5pm
