Recent California Legislation Impacting the Retail Industry

October 17, 2019
Arnold & Porter Webinar-of-the-Month Club for Retailers

With the largest economy in the country and the fifth largest in the world, California is home to an extraordinarily active state legislature that routinely passes laws with significant and far-reaching impact in California and beyond. These laws are implemented by the state's vast array of regulatory agencies, many of which are trendsetters that also influence the national policy agenda.

This webinar examines recently introduced and enacted legislation of importance to the retail industry, including legislation pertaining to the following: packaging and waste reduction, consumer privacy and customer loyalty programs, paper receipts, animal welfare, litigation, and labor and employment.

The super-competitive and rapidly changing retail landscape presents a minefield of legal challenges.

Each month, starting in October, we will present a new webinar addressing a different topic of interest tailored to the needs of in-house counsel at retailers and their clients.

Arnold & Porter has extensive experience in counseling retailers and defending them in litigation, and our presenters are all leaders in their respective areas of law. We look forward to sharing our experience with you.

Dates for the sessions in 2019 are already set, and we will follow up with our 2020 dates.
