The 2018 ANA Advertising Law & Public Policy Conference is being held on March 15-16 in Washington, DC.

Partner John Villafranco will serve on the "Shifting Ground Beneath Your Feet" panel which will discuss what has changed at the FTC and what remains the same with nearly a year into the Trump administration.
