Insights: Events German Companies before the US courts – Practical Tips to Protect Your Business Before It Is Too Late

German American Chamber of Commerce

Wednesday, February 3, 2021

Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton will share important lessons learned from successfully representing German companies in the U.S. courts for decades.

Experienced litigator John Jett will give practical tips on what German companies should do to avoid being sued in the U.S. courts. The U.S. court system differs from its German counterpart in many important, and perhaps surprising, respects. He will discuss with the audience best practices for writing business emails and communicating with customers to be best prepared for potential litigation.

Corporate attorney Dr. Siegmar Pohl will address the best structure and governance for US subsidiaries of German companies to minimize litigation risk and exposure in the US. This will included advice on selecting directors and officers as well as dispute resolution clauses in commercial contracts.

Although this webinar will focus on practical tips broadly applicable to all businesspeople, it will be particularly relevant to those addressing risk mitigation, corporate structure, and contract negotiations.
