November 29, 2012
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
Join us on this week’s Capital Thinking as host Kevin O’Neill is first joined by Jack Deschauer to discuss the outlook for national security and defense in President Obama’s second term, including potential position changes in the area. Next, Hannibal Kemerer will stop by to explain why he thinks changes should be made to an appellate statute that would affect the reassignment of remanded cases. Following that, Kevin will welcome first-time guest Joseph West, President and CEO of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association and Mary Beth Bosco. Joseph and Mary Beth will examine diversity in the legal community, and the importance of broadening the demographic to accommodate the changing demands of corporate clients. Lastly, Paul Besozzi, Stephen McHale and Dan Waltz will close out the show by providing an overview of the role played by the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States (CFIUS) and the possibility its powers may be expanded.
