Crowell & Moring has issued its fifth annual report on regulatory trends for in-house counsel. “Regulatory Forecast 2019: What Corporate Counsel Need to Know for the Coming Year” explores a diverse range of regulatory developments coming out of Washington and other leading regulatory centers of power, and it takes a deep dive into international trade—examining the challenges and opportunities that will arise in the year ahead as global businesses compete in the digital revolution and operate their businesses across borders.
The section focusing on government contracts, “Battening Down the Hatches on Cybersecurity,” discusses why doing business with the federal government will get tougher as requirements for cybersecurity become stricter.
Also relevant to contractors is the article “Congressional Influence on Rulemaking is On the Rise,” which discusses how congressional input on rulemaking is increasing as the Trump administration pursues deregulation.
