Event Details

The Next Frontier:
Maximizing A&D Foreign Market Opportunities
Understanding International Agreements
Guest Speaker:
Brett Johnson
Co-Chair, International Industry Group and
Government Relations Group
Partner, Snell & Wilmer, L.L.P.
Due to Federal Government cutbacks, the scaling back of wars abroad, and the uncertainty regarding sequestrations and Government shutdowns, aerospace and defense contractors are increasingly looking to the global marketplace for new opportunities. However, "going" abroad -- especially in regard to aerospace and defense technology and services -- has significant pitfalls for which companies should be aware and prepare accordingly. In addition, many domestic aerospace and defense companies are increasingly maximizing international supply chains.

Whether it is a foreign supplier or overseas markets for your company's goods and services, it is important to understand the nuances of international agreements. Businesses considering increasing their competitive advantage through international opportunities cannot simply rely on the "boilerplate" domestic agreement protections.

Brett Johnson will provide an in-depth review of the benefits, risks, and challenges inherent in negotiating and performing an international agreement -- including compliance with the myriad of Government laws and regulations.
