Letter from the Editor

Dear Friend of Snell & Wilmer,
Doing business abroad without careful consideration to rules and regulations, both at home and abroad, creates the potential for liability. In the same vein, businesses must know how to respond to litigation initiated against them and how to utilize specific forums to enforce their rights. In our increasingly global world, companies must simultaneously strive to ensure compliance with a myriad of laws, look to enforce their rights and protect themselves once a lawsuit is threatened or commenced.
This edition of Global Connection offers insight into pending guidelines for U.S. companies operating around the world, for domestic and international companies that find themselves subject to a grand jury investigation, and for companies faced with unfair acts in the importation and sale of products in the United States. It also provides a recap of the transborder conference: “Realizing the Economic Strength of Our 21st Century Border: Trade, Education and Jobs” held September 23-25, 2012 in Tempe, Arizona.
We hope this edition of Global Connection proves useful as you continue to seek out new opportunities . . .
