Why You Should Attend
In recent years, manufacturing sectors have faced drastic disruptions due to pandemic responses, international trade disputes, environmental factors, and now the tragic war in Ukraine. Thus, in 2020 PLI launched this critical program to provide attorneys with perspective from industry experts on successful strategies to manage their clients’ obligations under supply chain agreements. Attorneys practicing in the space must not only understand their own clients’ business models, but we must also grasp how shifting market forces determine the necessity of certain provisions and the contracting parties’ respective abilities to perform.
This program, now in its fourth year, will provide practical guidance and valuable instruction on the most pressing and difficult issues facing parties to supply chain agreements as well as stakeholders in enterprises being impacted by breaches and terminations of these agreements.
What You Will Learn
After completing this program, participants will be able to:
• Negotiate and draft effective contracts
• Gain perspective on ESG in addressing supply chain issues
• Incorporate ESG provisions into contractual terms
• Compare energy “self-reliance” thought to current energy processes during global supply chain disruptions
• Assess the status of U.S. energy demands
• Learn about ongoing impacts of material shortages, tariffs, trade wars, workforce issues, freight and shipping issues and port delays on supply chain contracts
• Navigate pricing disputes, stop-ship threats, and line down situations
• Advise clients on litigation v. arbitration strategies
In-house attorneys, and litigation and transaction attorneys advising on manufacturing, supply, and distribution contracts as well as market analysts in these sectors would benefit from this course.
