On October 29, 2013, Kelley Drye's International Trade practice hosted a full-day seminar to discuss the current and emerging issues critical to international supply chain compliance. 

Any company that imports or exports products or services is subject to an increasing array of regulations, and benefited from attending this comprehensive program.  The seminar featured high-level government speakers interspersed with industry roundtables and presentations from Kelley Drye attorneys from a wide array of practices, including international trade, environmental, government relations and public policy, advertising and marketing and consumer product safety, food and drug law and white collar crime and investigations. 

The program was free to attend and earned attendees 4-5 hours of CLE credit, depending on jurisdiction.
