How To Enter The US Market: New Framework, Old Tips
The New York State Bar Association and the Milan Bar Association will be signing a friendship agreement and on this occasion, they will hold a webinar, “How To Enter The Us Market: New Framework, Old Tips.”
The new American administration and the challenges that lie ahead in international trade is a great occasion for discussion and reflection among stakeholders. The Milan Bar Association is also happy to announce, at this particular time, another cooperation agreement with one of the oldest and most important lawyers’ associations.
Founded in 1876, the NYSBA now has members in 50 states and over 100 countries worldwide, with a membership that has grown to over 70,000 lawyers. The best bet is still to play our part as lawyers to foster this important business relationship with a country, the U.S.A., which ranks third among the commercial business partners of Italy and absorbs around 9.2% of the Italian exports.
