On October 31, 2017, Cohen Seglias attorneys Maria Panichelli and Bob Ruggieri are presenting their seminar, "Avoiding Legal Pitfalls - Teaming/Subcontracting for Federal Opportunities with Primes," for the DC Small Business Resource Center (SBRC) in Washington, DC.
One of the hottest topics in federal contracting right now is teaming and joint venturing. While many contractors know the terms, not nearly as many fully understand the requirements necessary to draft enforceable agreements. During this seminar, we will cover the correct way to use teaming and joint ventures to your advantage. We will discuss how to form an eligible JV, the proper procedures for entering into an enforceable teaming agreement, important clauses you should include in these types of agreements, as well as common pitfalls you should avoid. We will consider the practical implications of negotiating terms of a teaming or JV agreement from both the prime and subcontractor perspectives. We will also discuss other partnering strategies, including mentor-protégé relationships. Recent developments in this area of law will also be covered.
