Every Monday and Wednesday 11/1/2021-11/17/2021

Without a doubt, negotiating with OEMs and other customers is one of the biggest challenges facing the electronic manufacturing services (EMS) manager/executive. What needs to be covered in the contract? How should risk be allocated and balanced with pricing? Are there proper allocations of risk and limitations of liability for warranty, intellectual property, sourcing, and product content provisions? Is our company properly protected? How do I protect my company against supply chain uncertainty and related product delivery risks? What terms represent industry standards in the allocation of risk and responsibility? What should we do if there is a dispute? What are current best practices? This unique program addresses the specific issues EMS companies face while contracting with a customer. This highly interactive course allows participants to experience major contractual aspects of dealing with a theoretical customer at an EMS company using real-life documentation, beginning with receipt of a non-disclosure agreement, and continuing through review of a bid package or scope of work, the negotiation and execution of a manufacturing services agreement, and a dispute with the customer. The Instructors are EMS subject matter experts with 40+ years of experience providing legal services to EMS companies worldwide, including drafting and negotiating customer and supply chain-related agreements, assisting in the acquisition and divestiture of facilities, and advising on compliance, human resources, and dispute resolution, including representations in mediations, arbitrations, and litigation.
