Overview

Companies seeking to expand or support their global footprint can run into unfamiliar legal territory when it comes to compliance with U.S. international trade laws.  Noncompliance with these laws can result in penalties and other unanticipated costs to companies.  This seminar aims to identify the common compliance pitfalls experienced by companies engaged in international transactions, including those entering the global marketplace for the first time. Armstrong Teasdale attorneys will discuss what corporate counsel needs to know about compliance with U.S. laws governing international commerce, including U.S. import laws, export controls, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and economic sanctions programs.

As always, we encourage members to bring an associate, colleague or friend who might be interested in joining our Mid-America Chapter of ACC.  The Association of Corporate Counsel offers many benefits and resources to in-house counsel and we look forward to sharing that information with others in this field.  Note that if you are bringing a guest, please provide the guest’s name (and company affiliation, if different from yours) when you respond to attend.

Take a few moments right now to RSVP and plan to join us on January 8th!  Registration deadline is January 6th.

Participation in the seminar by conference call is available for our members outside the Kansas City area.  Please contact me for more information.
