The SBA's New Presumed Loss Rule: Perspectives from the SBA, DOJ, and Business

Online via Web Broadcast

December 6, 2013
12 noon - 1:15 p.m. EST
[Past Event]

You are cordially invited to a complimentary web broadcast briefing presented by Blank Rome LLP.

The Small Business Administration's ("SBA") new Presumed Loss Rule dramatically changes the consequences for mis-certification of a business' size or status, and dictates that large and small organizations modify their business practices and strategies. The Rule also leaves open some critical, unanswered questions for small and large businesses alike.

Join Kenneth Dodds, Director of the SBA's Office of Government Contracting, Ryan Faulconer, Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Financial Crimes and Public Corruption Unit of the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia, and Al Krachman, Partner at Blank Rome LLP, as they discuss the conduct targeted by the Presumed Loss Rule, its purpose, and:

  • the new standard of care in size and status representations;
  • the Presumed Loss Rule and SBA Size/Status Determinations;
  • the role of the DOJ and possible triggers for DOJ enforcement action;
  • safe harbors and mitigating circumstances;
  • actions required by small and large businesses; and
  • offensive and defensive uses of the Rule by competitors.
