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

  • Cultural Awareness

  • Cross Functional Coordination with HQ

  • Assessing Risk through Friendly “Audit” Meetings

  • Being a Legal Services Sales Person

  • Establishing Compliance Training

  • Hiring Local Counsel


Audience: In-house counsel and legal professionals; CFO; compliance; controllers; risk management.

The above program is offered via live webinar or in person.  The length of the session is geared toward the particular client's needs.
