Partner Melissa Brumback was the featured teaching presenter at an engineering conference in Alexandria, VA on August 28th. The half-day teaching seminar, “A View From Outside Counsel,” was held at the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest joint conference of a private engineering client. Presenting to 60 engineer attendees, the session included interactive discussions and workshops and covered legal topics including:
