Event Details

Opportunities to profit from this development are there, provided that one knows what to do and how to do it. In light of the IMF's forecast that the global economy will likely slow to a 'virtual standstill' in 2009, does globalization still demand that small and medium – sized businesses get in the global game? According to Steiger, the answer is Yes, more than ever! The Globalized Lawyer is a practical, step-by-step guide on how to prepare for, negotiate, and implement a new cross-border operation, examining both legal and business considerations involved. In it, Steiger seeks to explain in clear, understandable terms the methods and cautions advanced by world-renowned experts that offer a truly global perspective on doing business overseas. Having logged tens of thousands of miles to visit outsourcing centers in India, meet in-house counsel in Singapore and develop guanxi with China-based business insiders, Steiger has also brought together representatives of multiple disciplines for a truly multi-faceted look at the process of international deal making. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing at the program.
