Regulatory Forecast 2017: What Trump Means For Business

How the White House, Congress and the Courts are changing the landscape

WASHINGTON, May 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce the release of its third annual regulatory outlook, “Regulatory Forecast 2017: What Trump Means for Business.”

The special report provides in-depth analysis on how the new administration, Congress, and the federal courts are changing the regulatory landscape and what it means for business in the months ahead. The Forecast also kicks off the firm’s new information series, “Trump: The First Year,” which will offer ongoing alerts and analysis about the regulatory changes emerging from the White House.

“The first year of a new administration always brings change, but this is no ordinary transition. This administration has extended an open invitation to industry to come to Washington and share its ideas. For businesses with longstanding regulatory concerns and objectives, the opportunity to engage with Washington is now,” said Angela Styles, chair of Crowell & Moring and former administrator for federal procurement policy within the Office of Management and Budget at the White House. “Our insights will help businesses understand the shifting landscape and identify the opportunities and risks ahead.”

Regulatory Forecast 2017
The Regulatory Forecast provides in-house counsel and business leaders with forward-looking insight on the issues most affecting U.S. and international businesses, including government contracts, antitrust, health care, energy, environment, international trade, cybersecurity, consumer protection, tax, and labor and employment. An infographic highlights the complex path for achieving regulatory reform in Washington.

Feature articles in the Forecast include:

  • Health care: As repeal-and-replace remains unsettled, where is health care today?
  • Energy and environment: Regulatory reform and the future of energy infrastructure.
  • Antitrust: Will federal enforcement activity ratchet down and, if so, will states and other countries step in to fill the gap?
  • Labor and employment: The status of Obama-era regulations, including overtime pay and pay equity.

Trump: The First Year

Crowell & Moring’s new series, “Trump: The First Year,” will provide webinars, podcasts, and other timely analysis covering regulatory developments from Washington throughout the first year of President Trump’s administration. Crowell & Moring’s team of lawyers and government affairs advisors will follow the issues that the president identified for his administration and provide timely updates and analysis for corporations as developments unfold.

The new series will focus on four topics:

  • Defending America—Borders, Homeland & National Security
  • Deconstructing the “Administrative State”
  • The Nation’s Health Care
  • Restoring American Jobs & Infrastructure

Corporate counsel, executives, and members of the media are invited to attend a special webinar, “What Trump Means for Business,” set for May 24. It will explore developments in each of the four major topic areas—and all with a focus on how a changing Washington could impact business.
