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.

Political Turmoil, Government Instability, Unpredictable Economies and Trump: The International Arbitration Approach to Issues Impacting the Global Energy Market


This presentation will provide an overview of important issues impacting the global energy market and how investors can mitigate against commercial and political risk and how this is viewed through the lens of international arbitration. For instance: elections in 14 Latin American companies and others in Europe over the next two years are expected to lead to new energy policies in those countries. For example, Mexico’s new president has a vision for Pemex that is a complete reversal of the one shared by the prior regime, which is causing anxiety for recent investors in Mexico’s energy sector. To a more drastic extreme, the consequences of Venezuela’s tragic economic collapse has yet to be determined but the various scenarios are not comforting for foreign investors. In Guyana, where multinational energy companies hold major concessions, recently failed elections have caused uncertainty to abound regarding the treatment of existing concessions with the government. The Trump effect can be seen by the current administration’s view on international treaties such as NAFTA. U.S. investors have often relied on the protections of US treaties to protect their foreign investments, but those treaties are being altered or dropped. Likewise, the attitude towards China and Russia continues to shift. And of course, there is Brexit, which may impact energy investments in the North Sea. Some assurance for mitigating both commercial and political risk when investing in energy projects worldwide can be provided through international arbitration. This presentation will explain the commercial terms that should be considered when investing in energy projects worldwide, as well as treaty protections available to investors for future and current energy investments.

Learning Objective:

  • A comprehensive overview global energy markets and international arbitration.
