Christian & Small is pleased to join Spicer Rudstrom, PLLC and Belmont University College of Law in sponsoring a panel discussion on September 16 on the topic: Law as Impediment–or Facilitator–to International Business. Christian & Small Partner Richard E. Smith will participate as one of the panelists.
As we move towards an ever-increasingly global economy, the time has never been better to discuss issues pertinent to international negotiations and what the law can do to facilitate cross-border business rather than impede it. This presentation will address topics such as the law impeding or facilitating international negotiations, including choice of language, forum, law and monetary system; overcoming cultural barriers; overcoming dispute resolution; ethical considerations; and what the legal profession needs to do to facilitate international business. Joining the panel is the managing partner of Brodermann Jahn in Hamburg, Germany, whose law practice covers five continents.
