The Americas Forum, sponsored by the American Bar Association Section on International Law, is a one and a half day conference that will feature two tracks on best practices for international companies doing business in the Americas and for companies in the Americas working internationally. The Forum will be presented by international legal experts and will attract a diverse audience of lawyers, in-house counsel, government representatives, academics and law students from the United States, Central and Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada. It will begin with a plenary session on the “CONTINENTAL SHIFT: The Changing Terrain of Professional Ethics in the Americas” and will be followed by a series of panels presented by international legal experts on the latest in key topics such as cross-border litigation, arbitration, politics and M&A, Energy, Natural Resources Development and Sustainability. This program will also offer a unique forum for international lawyers to explore and expand their networks as well as meet colleagues from all over the world during networking breakfasts, networking breaks, a luncheon, and receptions, which are included with the registration fee.
