Political Activity Related to this Year’s US Elections: Pitfalls to Avoid

This year's US presidential election has drawn the attention of voters across the country as well as people around the world. Political activity by a business, its officers, directors and employees is highly regulated and could subject the business to significant penalties if undertaken in a way that violates applicable laws and regulations. Please join Mayer Brown Government partners John Janicik and Joe Seliga for an overview of the legal and regulatory framework governing political activity related to this year's elections, including considerations at the federal, state and local levels, and the potential applicability of pay-to-play regulations such as those adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board and other bodies.
