Identifying Legal Issues in Foreign Subsidiaries
In-house counsel must frequently be a “jack of all trades” in providing constructive advice to business colleagues. When presented with an end-goal from management, in-house counsel cannot be part of the sales prevention team and say the end-goal is not possible. Instead, counsel must assess a variety of cross-functional factors to arrive at one or more solutions that will help propel the business forward. This assessment is all the more challenging in the context of foreign subsidiaries.
This session makes in-house counsel aware of the variety of issues – legal and
non-legal – that may arise in a company’s foreign operations. Topics covered will include:
Types of Business Presence
Cross Functional Coordination with HQ
Assessing Risk through Friendly “Audit” Meetings
Establishing Compliance Training
Hiring Local Counsel
The above program is offered via live webinar or in person. The length of the session is geared toward the particular client's needs.
This training is helpful for staff in a company’s legal; finance; compliance; and risk management departments.
