Timothy D. Charlesworth, Kenneth R. Charette and Douglas Panzer will all be presenting at the Lehigh University Small Business Development Center’s “Bringing the World to You” event on Monday, September 10, at Lehigh University’s Ben Franklin TechVentures.
“Bringing the World to You” is a state-wide initiative, with presentations taking place at ten locations throughout Pennsylvania. The goal is to allow businesses looking toward overseas expansion to learn more about the foreign markets, listen to top analysts discuss various topics, and network with like-minded people.
The theme of this year’s event is Logistics of Exports. Mr. Charlesworth, who leads the Firm’s International Business & Trade Law Practice, will be speaking on complex topics such as the Russia sanctions, Due Diligence and working with foreign counsel, as well as how clients can protect themselves through contractual language. Mr. Charette, a shareholder in the Firm’s Corporate, Business & Banking Practice, will focus on the pertinent topic of the steel and aluminum tariffs, and what companies can do to seek exemptions from them. Mr. Panzer, as head of the Firm’s Intellectual Property Practice, will discuss the importance of, and processes related to, foreign trademark protection.
All of these topics affect a great deal of companies, from those just starting out to those currently operating overseas. Mr. Charlesworth, Mr. Charette, and Mr. Panzer will be the keynote speakers during the breakfast portion of the event. To attend, register now.
