Our Doing Business Globally programs in Chicago (Nov. 7) and Dallas (Nov. 9) will explore how digitalization is transforming supply chains during one of our Session 1 discussions on “Supply Chain Collaboration in a Digital World: Risks and Rewards.” This panel, featuring Baker McKenzie lawyers and senior business executives, will outline the advantages and risks of a fully integrated supply chain, as well as provide best practices in project tracking, coordination and dealing with disruptive technologies.
“With the influx of technological advancements, business models around the world are changing rapidly, and it is more important than ever for global companies to understand and comply with the laws of every jurisdiction in which they operate,” said Christina Conlin, counsel in Baker McKenzie’s Chicago office who will serve as a panelist. “This panel is designed to help multinationals identify and manage supply chain compliance risks to gain a competitive edge in the market.”
The panel will focus on several strategic challenges for supply chain collaboration in the Digital Age, including:
- Ensuring supply chain integrity, including legal protections against human rights violations, counterfeit goods and gray market products.
- Managing the growing threat of trade secret theft.
- Criminal and regulatory actions involving supply chain conduct.
