Two Nations Divided by a Common Language: Leaping Across the Pond to the U.S.

A U.S. Legal Roadmap for Expanding U.K. Technology Companies

Winston & Strawn, in collaboration with UK Trade & Investment, invites you to join us for a practical, interactive seminar designed to equip you with the information you'll need to expand your business to the United States. Far from an ordinary lecture on the U.S. legal system, you'll hear from experienced U.S. lawyers – live in London and in the U.S.– who will provide real world advice to help you successfully navigate the complexities and avoid the pitfalls as you plan to enter the U.S. market.

To complete the picture, you'll hear from UK business people who have successfully made the jump to the US tell how they did it, so you can learn from their experiences before you begin your own journey. After the presentations, the experts will be available for one-on-one discussions in an informal networking environment.

Hear the latest best practices and get answers to your questions on the following critical issues:

Setting Up - Where and how to create a U.S. entity, corporate contractual issues and dispute resolution;

Staffing Up - Policies and practices to keep your business in line with federal and state labor law requirements;

Paying Up - What you need to know about international, federal, state, and local tax issues;

Keeping Up - How to protect trade secrets and manage your intellectual property rights and unique Web 2.0 issues.

Any company considering expansion to the U.S. should not miss this informative and entertaining session!
