Changing Litigation Risks for Norwegian Companies Transacting Business in the U.S. - 3 December

The U.S. litigation landscape is continously changing, both through new federal and state legislation and through the evolutionary process of the common law by which judges shape traditional legal rules to meet modern facts and circumstances. Over the past decade, there have been multiple changes that potentially impact Norwegian companies which, either directly or indirectly through subsidiaries or affiliate companies, sell goods or services or otherwise transact business in the United States.

This program will discuss these changes and provide advice on how to make the optimum use of the risks that have diminished and how to minimize the risks that have increased. The full program can be downloaded here.


Key note Speaker:

 These issues will be addressed by Richard M. Franklin, who is a Partner in Baker & McKenzie’s Chicago office and the immediate past Chair of its North American Litigation Practice Group. Mr. Franklin has had many years of experience in defending companies in litigation and advising them regarding reducing the risks of doing business in the United States. His practice has focused particularly on representing European companies transacting business in the United States, either directly or through their subsidiaries or other affiliated companies.


Moderator for the seminar will be Erlend Haaskjold, Litigation Partner at Arntzen de Besche. Mr Haaskjold is a specialist in contract law and has broad experience in Cross-Border Litigation and International Commercial Arbitration. He will lead the discussions and add Norwegian perspective.
