Senior Executives to Discuss Timely Corporate and Legal Issues Impacting Businesses Throughout the Americas

NEW YORK – November 10, 2014 – Amid increased cross-border transactions across the Americas, ALM’s Corporate Counsel and national law firm Akerman LLP will co-host the second annual U.S. Latin America Legal Summit at the JW Marriott Marquis in Miami on November 13, 2014.

Legal counsel, compliance officers and other senior executives from Fortune 500 and Latin 500 companies will gather at this exclusive event to exchange insights on timely corporate and legal issues impacting global businesses in the region.

Chaired by Akerman Partner Francisco A. Rodriguez, Summit discussions will include:
• Multi-Tier Dispute Resolution Clauses
• Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA): Prosecution of an FCPA Case
• Labor & Employment Issues: Three Things an Employer Should Master for Success in Latin America
• International Litigation and Risk Management
• Post-Election Brazil: An Outlook on Infrastructure, Investment Opportunities, and Policies
• Contingency Planning and Protection of Investments in Countries with High Political Risk
• Banking in Latin America/Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA)

“There’s enormous upside in Latin America for international law firms —especially as the region’s companies use their growing cash and clout to acquire overseas competitors,” said David Brown, editor-in-chief and vice president at ALM. “But investing in Latin America isn’t for wimps: 2013 was a slow year for deals, and while 2014 has been better, slower growth, creeping inflation and political instability have muddied the waters.  It’s a time when having a strong business plan and clear information will be key. Keep your seat belts fastened.”

The Summit is qualified for CLE credit. A cocktail reception for speakers and attendees will follow the full-day event.
