Course Description

When a product or service saturates a domestic market, the best chance for growth is often found overseas. In this lesson, ExecSense examines how you as General Counsel can best serve your executive team when expansion into foreign markets is on the table.

This lesson is led by an expert on the topic, Mark Clarkson (Chairman – MOG Stocks and Securities Ltd.), and focuses on identifying international market expertise in your current team, the legal challenges presented by overseas expansion, and how to comply with the rules and regulations of the foreign markets your company is preparing to enter.

In this 60-minute session, you will learn:

  • How to apply your domestic expertise to international expansion and strategically lead growth in your organization
  • The most important laws, rules, and regulations to know when entering foreign markets, and how to effectively inform your senior leaders of them
  • The most important tips and techniques for performing comprehensive due diligence on the expansion of your company
  • How to turn your team into an in-house source of expertise on international legal concerns and ways to turn the experiences of foreign companies into useful data
  • Specific case studies of like-minded General Counsels who’ve become experts on legal and business practices abroad, and successfully lead international expansions to the benefit of their companies’ bottom lines
