MAPLE Business Council Summer Event - Orange County

  • CSA Group Inc. 34 Bunsen Irvine, CA, 92618 United States (map)

At MAPLE we bring together executives and entrepreneurs interested in exploring cross-border trade and investment opportunities between Southern California and Canada.

Join us for our Summer Member Networking Event. Come meet our board of directors and connect with current and prospective members spanning business sectors and growth stages from across Southern California. RBC will be joining us from Toronto by web conference to provide a brief snapshot of the Canadian economy and markets. There will be an opportunity to network over continental breakfast before our presentations. Following the presentations, there will be a tour of the CSA Group testing labs for those interested.

Mr. Garth Stevens, Partner at Snell & Wilmer and MAPLE Board Member, will return to the podium to offer insights and advice on "How to Bankrupt Your Lawyer". Based on over 20 years of practice in complex M&A and other transactional work, as well as serving as outside general counsel to a large number of companies for corporate and business matters, Garth has assembled a collection of suggestions for things that businesses of all sizes can do to reduce, if not eliminate, legal problems and the associated costs that come with them. You may recall his excellent presentation at our inaugural meeting last June on the cross-border work of the Canada Arizona Business Council.

D'Alessio Law Group will discuss the role of the immigration attorney today in cross-border business in such areas as facilitating the implementation of innovative ideas, using relevant technologies in reaching younger cross-border audiences, the importance of communication for building long-term relationships with both companies and employees, and in supporting arriving professionals' and executives' market reach upon arrival. Presenting will be Founding Partner, Lorraine D'Alessio and Partner, Liz Profumo.
