Is your business considering expanding into a foreign jurisdiction?  Do you have clients that are considering doing business overseas?  Every day more companies, spanning virtually all industries, consider making the leap to doing business overseas, or expanding their current overseas operations.  When companies decide to expand in this way, in-house counsel face many complex issues, including those related to regulatory compliance, tax, employment, intellectual property, and M&A transactions.  Outside counsel are similarly challenged with providing complete, yet practical, advice on overseas expansion.

This CLE is intended to highlight key legal issues that arise when companies expand or do business overseas.  The panelists, representing both in-house counsel and private practitioners, will discuss common issues encountered by companies looking to expand abroad.  They will also outline best practices for international expansion, and suggest helpful resources.

Format: Panel discussion beginning with initial observations from each panelist, followed by a guided Q&A session during which the moderator will present a scenario or question and have the panelists walk through the implications and issues in different areas of law.

Moderator: Jim Clack, General Counsel, Paccar Inc.
