First Annual Corporate Counsel CLE Conference

F&B Law Firm, P.C., sponsored its first annual Corporate Counsel CLE Conference at Benelux Café at Straight to Ale in Huntsville, Alabama, on September 13, 2019.  Topics included: International Contracting for the Purchase and Sale of Goods; How to Protect Your Inventions in the Global Economy; U.S. Export Controls and Compliance; Third-Party Risk Management; Preparing to Be a Corporate Victim of Cybercrime; and Ethics and Professionalism for In-House Counsel.  The topics were presented by a variety of subject matter experts including presenters from F&B; the Intellectual Property Practice Group for Nixon Peabody LLP; the United States Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Alabama; Progress Rail Services Corporation; National Airspace Solutions, LLC (Bechtel Corporation); and the Office of the General Counsel for the Alabama State Bar Association.  In addition to receiving high quality local CLE provided in the program, in-house counsel from the region were encouraged to network and become familiar with others similarly situated, to help share resources and experiences.  The program was followed by a networking session which included tasting of the many refreshing, frothy offerings from Straight to Ale.

F&B provides a variety of service to its corporate clients, both large and small, in both the commercial and government contracting business, including in-house counsel services.  To that end, the second annual Corporate Counsel CLE Conference is being planned for September 2020 in Huntsville, and will be held at a similar, but different, venue. Topics have not yet been decided, but those in attendance at the 2019 conference will have the opportunity prior to the program being decided, to cast votes  on a variety of topics suggested during the 2019 program.  Topics getting the most votes will be included in the 2020 program.
