Anaheim, CA USA

Legal & Regulatory Partner of Natural Products Expo West

Because the evolving legal and regulatory landscape affects our industry in unprecedented ways, Natural Products Expo West has partnered with Venable LLP to provide you with an opportunity to sit down with one of their attorneys in a one-on-one meeting to discuss the legal issues facing your business.

To participate, submit a “request for consultation” to ask questions about such issues as regulatory challenges, intellectual property protection, state and federal investigations, and enforcement.

These consultations are not intended to create an attorney-client relationship. Any advice may be given only when it is related to specific fact situations that Venable has accepted an engagement as counsel to address.

The meeting area will be located at the Anaheim Convention Center, Hall A Lobby in Venable’s custom-built office space.

Hours of Operation: 

Thursday, March 5 | 10:00am – 6:00pm

Friday, March 6 | 10:00am – 6:00pm
