One of the largest business impacts of the pandemic has been the interruptions to the global supply chain that have hit nearly every sector, from electronics to wine production — and even baby formula.
While supply chain issues first started making news in 2020, they continue to grab headlines two years later.
As a result, many companies and their lawyers are rethinking their business strategies in an attempt to address potential supply chain issues and curb future financial uncertainty.
The first line of defense against unforeseen loss and risks of liability for any company is tightly drafted contracts prepared by well-equipped attorneys. PLI’s half-day program, Supply Chain Agreements 2022: Manufacturing and Market Disruption, will provide the basic building blocks for attorneys dealing with negotiating, drafting, or advising on manufacturing, supply, and distribution agreements.
The program will touch on key supply chain-related issues, including:
- The causes and extent of current supply chain disruptions
- How material shortages, tariffs, trade wars, workforce issues, freight and shipping issues, and port delays are impacting supply chain contracts
- What manufacturing companies are doing to mitigate losses and recover from disruptions
- Key contract terms related to sustainability
- How to develop contracting strategies for mitigating sustainability-related risks
- Tips for negotiating agreements from both the buy and sell sides
- What to expect from manufacturing markets in 2022
Any in-house, litigation, or transactional attorney involved in advising on manufacturing, supply, and distribution contracts needs to be aware of these developments. For the most up-to-date insights on factors impacting supply chain agreements, register today.
