Event Description

Join WGR for the third webinar in our Political Compliance 101 series!
We continue to see increased activity in laws that restrict or prohibit gifts to public officials and employees, including President Trump’s executive order (“Ethics Commitments by Executive Branch Appointees”), which includes extensive provisions on gifts to covered appointees. This webinar will refresh your knowledge of gift compliance basics. Topics will include Congressional and federal executive branch gift rules, including discussions of valuing tickets to sporting events as well as rules around fact-finding trips and site visits.  In addition, we will discuss commonly used gift exemptions and best practices for compliance.
The presentation will:
  • Explain key provisions of federal gift rules and their practical impact
  • Recommend strategies for compliance

Speaker: Melissa L. Miles, Counsel, Political Law, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP
