The webinar will focus on the legal rights and obligations of suppliers up and down the supply chain while providing guidance to protecting company interests. The ramifications to the supplier base loom large. Impacted suppliers should act now and assess their contractual rights, obligations, and potential liability, up and down the supply chain.

Presenters include:
  • James C. Bruno’s practice includes corporations and limited liability companies; the Uniform Commercial Code; automotive and other industry supplier relations; international business law and foreign employment; closely held business; mergers and acquisitions; and joint ventures. He has been active in the firm's foreign practice, including oversight of the firm's Mexican alliance office.
  • Sheldon Klein regularly represents automotive industry suppliers in matters relating to upstream and downstream commercial relationships, including counseling on terms and conditions and litigation arising out of supply chain disruptions and disputes.
  • Jennifer A. Dukarski practices in the areas of intellectual property, media and technology. She focuses her practice at the intersection of technology and communications with an emphasis on the legal issues arising from emerging and disruptive innovation: digital media and content, vehicle safety, connected and autonomous cars, shared mobility, infotainment, data privacy and security.
