When multinational businesses undertake business model optimisation (BMO) initiatives, they often must terminate trade agreements to achieve desired changes. What legal issues might arise due to such actions? We'll discuss:
- An overview of the potential BMO initiatives.
- Potential legal approaches for achieving a new structure through BMO, legal services required, and advantages and pitfalls, including possible high compensation payments to terminated agents.
- Relevant legislation in EU member states, including Northern (Norway), Eastern (Poland), and Western (Switzerland) European countries.
Hear results of a Deloitte BMO survey and ways that multinational businesses are addressing legal risks of terminating trade agreements.
