Regulatory Forecast 2017: What Trump Means for Business

Crowell & Moring LLP has released its third annual regulatory outlook, “Regulatory Forecast 2017: What Trump Means for Business.” The 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 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.”
