A new generation of Latin American cross-border agreements and standard contractual clauses: what are they and why are they needed?

Wednesday 15 March (1430 - 1600)

Sheraton Buenos Aires Hotel & Convention Center


In recent years many Latin American markets have benefited from a booming economic growth, with increasing commerce. In this context, certain standard clauses are frequently included while drafting cross-border agreements. To avoid future headaches, never simply ‘copy and paste’ such clauses, but carefully consider what they establish. This panel will discuss the most commonly used clauses in Latin American cross-border agreements and their effects on parties’ future relationship.
