Williams Mullen Law Firm New Bronze Firearm Industry Compliance Conference Sponsor

NEWTOWN, Conn. — Orchid Advisors, the firearm industry’s trusted compliance and operations experts, and the National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the firearms industry’s trade association, are pleased to announce that Williams Mullen has agreed to sponsor the 2016 Firearms Industry Compliance Conference at the Bronze level. Headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, and with satellite offices in South Carolina, North Carolina and Washington, D.C., the firm provides legal services for a wide variety of enterprises, including those in the firearms industry.

“We regularly work along-side Williams Mullen on high-profile firearms industry matters. Their industry expertise, related to various legal services is top notch,” said Jon Rydberg, CEO of Orchid Advisors. “We are thankful to have them sponsor the conference again and look forward to their ongoing participation.”

“We’re very pleased to be working with the professionals from Williams Mullen again,” said Larry Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “Their expertise should be valued by all attending FICC.”

Co-hosted by Orchid Advisors and NSSF, the 2016 Firearms Industry Compliance Conference will take place May 2-4 in Atlanta, Georgia. The conference theme is highly focused on the future — where regulations are headed, how new developments in product research and development affect Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs), and what processes and technologies FFLs are using to significantly improve their business. Additionally, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) will provide focused sessions throughout the conference, offering FFLs an opportunity to interact, ask questions and focus on proactive compliance. In addition to three learning tracks to choose from during the conference, attendees can also take part in one of two pre-conference workshops on May 2. One workshop will cover firearms industry technology, while the other will take an in-depth look at federal firearms regulations.

Seating is limited for this conference and it will sell out, so industry members are encouraged to register now. To learn more about the 2016 Firearms Industry Compliance Conference, visit Register and reserve your seat here.
