This webinar, presented by Eric Crusius and Michael Samuels of Miles & Stockbridge Law Firm, will explain the key advance-planning, decision-making, litigation, and litigation avoidance practice pointers for bid protests. Both government and industry procurement personnel must understand their rights and obligations when litigating a protest or defending against one. Because the determination of whether and where to pursue a bid protest often falls first to corporate decision-makers, this webinar is designed for those who need to understand the process in order to make decisions that are in the best interests of their company. Furthermore, this webinar includes guidance for newcomers on the fundamentals of where and how to protest, and it also provides information on substantive developments for seasoned practitioners.
