Avoiding Common Mistakes in Global Trade Compliance

22nd Annual SMU Corporate Counsel Symposium

9-9:30 a.m. CDT

On Oct. 31, Gardere Partners Elsa Manzanares and Michelle Schulz co-chairs of the Firm's International Trade Practice, will be presenting "Avoiding Common Mistakes in Global Trade Compliance" at the 22nd Annual SMU Corporate Counsel Symposium. U.S. corporations and corporate counsel are faced with the increasing pressures of the trade enforcement actions taken by U.S. and foreign government agencies coupled with an increasingly competitive international market. Ms. Manzanares and Ms. Schulz will discuss ways to navigate the complex regulations and federal agency system when structuring international import and export transactions, as well as ways to reduce risks for fines and penalties.

The SMU Corporate Counsel Symposium is sponsored by the Dedman SMU School of Law. CLE credit is available for attendees. For more information, including registration options, click here.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
