The globalization of corporate America is nothing new. Over the years, more and more companies have begun to extend their businesses outside of the U.S., and it’s no surprise that the expansion has led to unique challenges for legal departments.
One of the first breakout sessions during Day 1 of InsideCounsel’s 12th annual SuperConference highlighted best practices in working in such a global environment. The well-attended session, titled “Managing Your International Business,” consisted of three panelists from global companies: J. Scott Pagan, chief corporate officer and corporate secretary of Descartes; Ron Provenzano, senior vice president, deputy general counsel and chief compliance officer at RR Donnelley; and Andrea Charters, vice president and associate general counsel at Rosetta Stone. John Kolada, partner at Blake, Cassels & Graydon, moderated the session.
