Please join us for a discussion focused on providing practical guidance to U.S. multi-national companies looking to grow their businesses in the European market.  Panelists will consider various types of commercial arrangements in Europe - such as the engagement of European suppliers, distributors, licensees, agents, service providers and other third parties, and will address key compliance issues U.S. companies should be aware of including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and international employment laws.     

Specific topics that will be addressed in this program include:

  • The types of commercial arrangements available to a U.S. company seeking to expand into the European market
  • Basic legal and commercial considerations in setting up cross-border commercial contracts with third parties in Europe
  • Frequent employment law issues in international commercial arrangements and how to address them: consultation obligations, employee transfers and terminations, and employer liabilities
  • Compliance and enforcement risks that third parties present under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
