Over the last two years, Seyfarth Shaw LLP’s Breakfast Panel Series has examined such timely topics as “The Non-Corporate Aspects of Mergers and Acquisitions”, and “Data Privacy and Data Security Issues” (this one proved extremely timely!).  We hope that you have benefitted from the unique perspective of our expert  industry panelists, and we appreciate you joining us at these important events.  

Trending topics for 2015 include Technology and Globalization, so we asked ourselves whether these topics present an opportunity or obstacle when combining the two, and whether they are related.  As U.S. operations expand into the global market place and more businesses are opening offices internationally, cross border transactions are becoming a fact of life.  At the same time, technology is ever changing, and we have been conditioned to believe that growth and technology should ideally work in tandem to help ensure a successful expansion.  Do these phenomena enable each other? What strategies should businesses employ to maximize the benefits of Globalization and Technology, in tandem or independently?  What products or efforts have proven to be more wasteful than productive?

For our first installment of 2015, we will examine the interaction and intersection of Technology and Globalization in business transactions - including mergers and acquisitions, sourcing of products, supplies, and talent, logistics, and management of worldwide customer, distributor, and supplier relationships. 

Please join our panel of experts who will share their insights and experiences in a conversational style as we explore the impact of technology as a cause, effect, or a solution to a new set of challenges. 

We encourage you to ask questions and participate.
