Webinar - State AG Use of Outside Counsel

On October 16, former Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum was featured during a STAGE Network webinar entitled, "Use of Outside Counsel by State AGs to Enforce Federal and State Law."

AG McCollum referred to his own experiences, including his leadership in Florida's adoption of the innovative "Transparency in Private Attorney Contracts" (TiPAC) law, to provide a perspective on issues related to state AGs' engagement of outside counsel. AG McCollum also examined the prospects for an increased role for state AGs in the enforcement of federal laws, particularly the consumer protection related aspects of Dodd-Frank. Finally, he discussed the comparative restrictions on state and federal actors in engaging outside counsel.
