Supply Chain and Credit


Check out the follow up webinar from Jim Gellert,  Continuing the Conversation: Expanding Credit Horizons & Evaluating Supply Chain Counterparties.

In challenging markets, cost cutting and budget management means that supply chain risk managers and procurement organizations need to be efficient and more sensitive than ever to ensure they work with suppliers who can deliver high quality goods and services to avoid exposing their company to reputational, revenue, business interruption and other risks. At the core of resilient supply chains are financially healthy suppliers. Credit professionals need to understand the nature of suppliers, the impact of their ability to grow with an organization as well as their potential to fail. Traditional credit analysis looks at downside risk without assessing upside potential of a company. In this session we will explore how credit professionals should evaluate their procurement and supply chain counterparties to detect leading indicators of other risk areas such as quality and delivery, and work with counterparties as partners to deliver maximum enterprise.

Objectives:

  • Learn about differences in credit decisions for analysis of procurement parties and how to apply credit processes to suppliers and vendors.

Choice of Law Clauses in Trading Agreements


Heffernan and Enochs will discuss considerations when determining choice of law, and why New York is so prevalent in Trading Agreements. This discussion will include topics such as exclusive vs. non-exclusive jurisdiction; drafting decisions regarding statutory references, specification of venue; and broadening choice of forum clause applicability to non-contractual issues. As you will hear, New York permits (and encourages) agreements to use New York as a forum, even in the absence of a party nexus with New York, provided certain criteria are met. What if exclusive New York jurisdiction is specified in a contract, but the criteria are not met, or New York choice of forum law is found to be unconstitutional? Recent developments, including 2018 ISDA model clauses, model clauses added to the New York court Administrative Rules in 2018, and case law will be presented.

Objectives:

  • To understand if New York Law is always the best choice or if, should you pick another state.
