Join Harris Bricken attorney Jonathan Bench for a live 90-minute CLE webinar on structuring international contracts with an interactive Q&A.
“This CLE course will guide counsel to companies doing business internationally on key considerations when structuring international contracts. The panel will discuss core contract provisions and offer strategies for addressing and minimizing the risks inherent to international business dealings. For U.S. companies, the international marketplace offers potential for profitable markets. In exchange for such opportunities, however, companies should expect a broad array of risks and performance challenges to which they have previously been unexposed. In light of the pandemic and the international supply chain disruptions, companies and counsel have a heightened awareness of the importance of contract terms as many manufacturers and suppliers overseas are operating at below capacity. Careful consideration should be paid to remedies when parties cannot meet contractual obligations due to the suspension of activities caused by the pandemic or otherwise. Lawyers responsible for drafting and negotiating contracts that minimize their clients’ exposure abroad need to consider unique obstacles encountered when operating overseas.
