Ahead of the Curve is Scali Rasmussen's quarterly newsletter, designed to keep its clients and friends ahead of the compliance curve. (We also use it to tell you what’s new at the firm, but we try to keep that to a minimum).
At Scali Rasmussen, we know you read Automotive News and Ward’s, and follow the news and alerts from the NADA and CNCDA, among other industry publications. Rather than regurgitate stories you may have read there or received from other law firms, we strive to provide reasoned, practical take-aways for you to think about or implement at your dealerships, based on real issues our clients are having or trends we are seeing in the industry. Ahead of the Curve is helping you to navigate the challenges of dealer compliance in a changing industry.
