uch attention has been paid to the growing economies of the Asia Pacific region in recent years, contrasting with the US and
much of Europe beset with the global financial crisis and its ramifications. Nonetheless, trade and sales across the Atlantic
continue to rise; EU/US trade was valued at €484.2bn, Canada/EU trade at €58.8bn, and Mexico/EU trade at €44.9bn in 2013,
with the result that the Transatlantic economy yields 50 per cent of the world’s GDP. Beyond trade agreements, other issues such as
those relating to data privacy, mobility, contract law and multijurisdictional practice continue to place lawyers at the centre of this
relationship. This programme discusses core legal issues which lawyers need to understand when representing clients involved in
Transatlantic trade, litigation and transactions.

The free speech/privacy divergence
Contracts in the new normal
Beyond cultural differences, US law regarding speech and privacy
seems to stand apart from not only EU law, but the law in North
America as well. In the context of business-to-business relations
there is a divergence of philosophy over advertising, commercial
speech and conduct and data privacy concerns. We observe
conflicts between US and Canada and US and EU extra territorial
application of privacy laws. The program will focus on concerns
expressed in the EU over US conduct, privacy breaches and the
like. Attention will also be given to the current conversation over
the ‘right to be forgotten’ – and spam email from one jurisdiction
into another.
After 25 years in the United States, the CISG still remains a novelty.
In Europe, certain quarters are seeking a unified law of contract
beyond the CISG. At the recent UNCITRAL session in New York,
these issues have come to the fore. In addition, more multinational
companies are insisting on social responsibility clauses and codes
of conduct in contracts. This panel explores best practices and
current tensions alongside existing contract law governing business
relationships in the Transatlantic relationship.

Continuing Professional Development/Continuing Legal Education
For delegates from countries where CPD/CLE is mandatory, the International Bar Association will be pleased to provide a Conference Certificate of Attendance
which, subject to the exact CPD/CLE requirements, may be used to obtain the equivalent accreditation in your jurisdiction.
This conference has been accredited for CPD/CLE by the Solicitors Regulation Authority of England and Wales. New York and Californian attorneys may submit
their certificates of attendance issued, and apply this credit earned to their New York and Californian CLE requirement. Delegates should ask staff at the
registration desk for information as to how to obtain the hours.
The organisers may at any time, with or without giving notice, in their absolute discretion and without giving any reason, cancel or postpone the conference, change
its venue or any of the other published particulars, or withdraw any invitation to attend. In any case, neither the organisers nor any of their officers, employees,
agents, members or representatives shall be liable for any loss, liability, damage or expense suffered or incurred by any person, nor will they return any money paid
to them in connection with the conference unless they are satisfied not only that the money in question remains under their control but also that the person who
paid it has been unfairly prejudiced (as to which, decision shall be in their sole and unfettered discretion and, when announced, final and conclusive).

Addressing corruption in an increasingly
digital world
Litigation and arbitration
Dispute resolution across borders implicates issues of discovery,
privilege, and enforcement. In the context of the Transatlantic
relationship, these issues are complicated not only by differing
philosophies between civil law and common law systems, but
by the overlay of European Union law. Lawyers who arbitrate or
litigate in this multinational context must understand not only
the logistics of service and discovery, but also the mechanisms
for recognition and enforcement of judgments and arbitration
awards. A panel of world class litigators and arbitrators discusses
current trends, problems and proposed solutions.

Corruption is not new, but the tools employed are ever changing.
As nations implement anti-corruption controls, businesses may
find themselves facing bureaucratic nightmares as the machinery
of government slows down and becomes overly formalistic.
This panel discusses the issues in the Transatlantic channel
of commerce relating to corruption and the response of the
Transatlantic community to cross-border corruption.

International Bar Association
the global voice of the legal profession
The International Bar Association (IBA), established in 1947, is the world’s leading organisation of international legal practitioners, bar
associations and law societies. The IBA influences the development of international law reform and shapes the future of the legal profession
throughout the world. It has a membership of more than 50,000 individual legal professionals and 205 bar associations and law societies spanning
all continents and has considerable expertise in providing assistance to the global legal community.
Grouped into two divisions – the Legal Practice Division and the Public and Professional Interest Division – the IBA covers all practice areas
and professional interests, providing members with access to leading experts and up-to-date information. Through the various committees of the
divisions, the IBA enables an interchange of information and views among its members as to laws, practices and professional responsibilities relating
to the practice of law around the globe. Additionally, the IBA’s world-class conferences provide unrivalled professional development and networkbuilding opportunities for international legal practitioners, senior business professionals, regulators and government officials.

IBA International Sales Committee overview
As part of its activities, the International Sales Committee examines
legal issues fundamental to the growth and development of
international commerce.
The committee deals extensively with issues relating to international
sales contracts, agency and distribution, cross-border acquisitions,
warranties and financing of international sales.
In addition to reviewing the current legal position in different countries
from a comparative perspective, the committee also examines
international and supranational instruments, such as the United Nations
Convention on the International Sale of Goods, Incoterms and the
Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits, as well as, for
example, relevant instruments of the European Union and Mercosur.
The committee also focuses on law reform in the fields of law within
its scope, and since 1997 has monitored and offered suggestions in
connection with the proposed Hague Convention on International
Jurisdiction and the Effects of Foreign judgments in Civil and
Commercial Matters.
Additionally, the International Sales Committee works with the
following committees to form the International Sales, Franchising
and Product Law Section:
• International Franchising
• Product Law and Advertising
IBA North American Regional Forum overview
The North American Regional Forum covers Canada, Mexico, Puerto
Rico, the United States, and English-speaking areas of the Caribbean.
Launched at the Chicago Annual Conference in 2006, the Forum is
the focus for all activities in the region, and organises sessions and
a luncheon event at each IBA Annual Conference for education and
networking. Future plans include organising conferences in partnership
with other IBA Committees and Fora, as well as other bar associations
and legal organisations in the region.
The Forum is closely affiliated with the Latin American Regional Forum
as the regions are geographically proximate and share many issues.
The aim of the orum is two-fold:
• To spread knowledge about legal practice within North America; and
• To expand the international perspective of lawyers practicing in
North America.
