On May 10, Cohen Seglias partner Maria Panichelli is presenting the Govology webinar "Teaming for Success: Teaming, Joint Ventures, and Mentor Protégé Relationships on Federal Contracts."

In the last few years, the FedCon community has been abuzz with excitement over teaming, joint venturing, and mentor-protégé arrangements. However, the concepts and requirements relating to teams and joint ventures are often very misunderstood. Many contractors confuse teaming, joint venturing, and the formation of mentor protégé relationships.  These types of partnerships have some major differences and raise different types of compliance concerns.

In this webinar, Maria will explain the differences between teaming arrangements and joint ventures, and provide strategies for determining which kind of partnership is right for you and your business.  She will also discuss how to form an eligible JV, the proper procedures for entering into an enforceable teaming agreement, important clauses you should include in these types of agreements, as well as common pitfalls to avoid. She will consider the practical implications of negotiating terms of a teaming or JV agreement and will also discuss other partnering strategies, including mentor-protégé relationships.

Target Audience: small business contractors who want to strengthen their position in the federal marketplace through teaming
