We try not to use this space for shameless self-promotion but we have an upcoming event in New York City that we’re so excited about that we just can’t help ourselves.

Venable is sponsoring a day long advertising symposium on Tuesday March 11th at the Vanderbilt Club in New York City.  Now listening to us talk about advertising law probably isn’t all that exciting, after all you can read what we have to say from the comfort of your own office but we’ll be joined by many of our Venable colleagues who are experts in areas such as promotions and sweepstakes, social media, direct marketing, litigation and brand sponsorships.  And you’ll have an opportunity to hear from regulators and outside counsel such as former FTC Bureau Director David Vladeck; Assistant Director Rich Cleland; Tom Cosgrove, Director of labeling compliance at the FDA; Laura Brett from the NAD; Jane Azia from the New York Attorney General’s office; network clearance counsel and many more.  And depending upon which state you practice in we may be able to get you CLE credit.

The complete agenda and invitation can be found here.  We’d love to have you join us if you can.
