Overview (Program Summary)

  • 12:00 p.m.  to 12:30 p.m. – Registration and Lunch

  • 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. – Presentation

Think again before you drop your familiar language into a cross-border contract and assume you know what it means in a non-US transaction. Our familiar "boiler plate" clauses may take on a very different meaning when interpreted by a non-U.S. tribunal.  

Please join ACC Northeast and Osborne Clarke's cross-border team for an informative Lunch & Learn session highlighting key issues to watch out for in international contracts, with a focus on UK and EU laws. This session will give you an opportunity to hear more about:

  • The importance of governing law, jurisdiction and dispute resolution clauses;
  • Tips to consider when contracting in different jurisdictions;
  • Force Majeure in global supply chain issues and pandemics;
  • Interpretation anomalies;
  • Breach of contract, and;
  • Other unusual contract law points to help avoid pitfalls for the unwary.  

Expert panelists from the firm will help demystify all of the above and share their experiences in advising hundreds of US businesses deal with cross-border issues.  Step away from your desk, enjoy a complimentary lunch, gain valuable information while learning and networking with other in-house counsel.

This lunch is open to the first 30 members who register, so RSVP below.
