Jim Kahl to Provide Political Law Compliance Update at ASAE Annual Association Law Symposium

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Womble Carlyle Political Law attorney Jim Kahl is among the speakers at the ASAE Annual Association Law Symposium. The Law Symposium takes place Oct. 5th at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

Kahl will provide a Political Law Compliance Update.

The 2012 election season is in full swing, and tax-exempt organizations have played an influential role in both candidate promotion and issue advocacy.

Kahl and attorney Jeffrey Altman of Whiteford, Taylor & Preston LLP will highlight the key political law compliance issues facing associations, advocacy organizations, and political action committees, including new state and FEC campaign finance rules, IRS rules defining and limiting political activities, congressional rules impacting lobbying registration and disclosure, and new political law risks.

Jim Kahl represents clients regarding the regulation of political activity, including counseling on federal and state laws governing campaign finance, government ethics, lobbying laws, and political activity by government employees. With an extensive background working in and practicing before federal agencies, Jim helps clients navigate the complex regulatory maze that impacts federal and state political activity. From 2002 to 2007, Jim served as Deputy General Counsel of the Federal Election Commission. He also served as Deputy Special Counsel at the US Office of Special Counsel.
