A global reach is increasingly the goal for many, if not most, U.S.-based nonprofit organizations. Indeed, it is difficult these days to find a U.S. nonprofit not engaged in or contemplating expansion of its operations and activities overseas.

There are a host of difficult and sometimes conflicting legal issues that need to be addressed to keep your nonprofit out of trouble. From hosting meetings, conferences and other events overseas, hiring local representatives, affiliating with foreign entities, and determining appropriate corporate and tax structures for overseas operations; to considering foreign payment and dispute resolution options and analyzing compliance with the anti-corruption laws, anti-boycott requirements, and U.S. export controls and sanctions programs; to determining trademark availability, establishing brand registration and control, and building brand strength and value – among many others – there is no shortage of legal issues and concerns that must be considered.

This program will provide an in-depth focus on three areas in particular: tax planning and compliance, trademarks (the law of branding), and compliance with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and its foreign counterparts. For any nonprofit operating – or contemplating operating – outside of U.S. borders, this is an invaluable session you and your advisers cannot afford to miss.
