Join us for our Fall Networking Event

As the cross-border business community for investment, trade and entrepreneurship opportunities between Southern California and Canada, we hope you can join us for our Summer Networking Event in Orange County. We are delighted to be hosting our event once again at Knobbe Martens Orange County offices.


Our Presentations

We have two excellent and timely presentations to share with you.

CORPORATE RESILIENCE: A BUSINESS LAWYER'S PLAYBOOK WHEN BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD COMPANIES
Mr. Garth Stevens, partner at the law firm, Snell & Wilmer, LLP and board member of MAPLE Business Council, will share recommendations as to actions that companies should (and should not) take from a business law perspective when faced with adverse situations that may give rise to legal disputes or claims. Topics covered will include best practices for dealing with contract breaches, litigation threats, data security breaches, regulatory violations and investigations, and employee misconduct.

CROSS-BORDER TAX STRATEGIES
Mr. Mo Ahmad, founder of Vancouver-based Westmark Tax, will discuss US and Canadian tax issues for companies with employees who are working or moving across the border including permanent transfers and short-term or business travellers. The presentation will also cover personal tax issues and executive compensation plans from a company perspective with best practices identified.
