Nathan M. Crystal will be speaking at the ABA Section of International Law’s 2014 North America Forum: “Doing Business within the Region and Collaborating Abroad” conference, which will be held on November 17-18, 2014 at the Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel in Vancouver. The conference will explore best practices for international companies doing business in North America and for North American companies working internationally — specifically, issues that arise in cross-border trade such as antitrust, cyber-security, privacy issues, enforcement of judgments, and compliance.
Nathan will speak on the panel Cross Border Ethics in the Digital Age (Monday, November 17, 2014 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM OPENING PLENARY SESSION):
Legal practice in North America cuts across national borders as well as provincial and state borders. Mexico, as a civil law system, contains its own set of assumptions and practices that may differ from the common law systems in the United States and Canada. Quebec as well provides another layer of complexity in evaluation cross-border rules relating to professional conduct. This program will cover various cross border ethical issues relating to transnational litigation as well as transactional topics, including choice of law and in-house counsel issues regarding attorney-client privilege, impact of surveillance, conflicts resolution and social media usage.
