Supply Chain Management

 

In an ever increasingly interconnected global economy, effective and efficient supply chain management is key in gaining a competitive advantage. The range of potential high impact-low probability ("HILP") disruptions to the operations of manufacturers, retailers, transportation carriers, and others involved in the supply chains of goods and services can be infinite. A resilient, well-structured supply chain should have the mechanisms to anticipate, prevent and/or remedy these disruptions. We help building resilient supply chains by addressing the following supply chain management issues:

Cross-Border Risk Management

The risks typically present domestically are exponentially increased in the global context. It is essential to develop practical contracting solutions based on predictable standards to minimize risks associated with international transactions providing for:
(i) implementing uniform global contracting policies;
(ii) optimizing unique benefits or remedies in foreign jurisdictions; and
(iii) minimizing exposure to litigation and potential damage awards in foreign jurisdictions.

Global Privacy Compliance

Global supply chains require a constant cross-border flow of information, which may be limited or prohibited in some cases. The ability to share data in compliance with applicable data privacy laws is often essential to building an effective international supply chain.
