Event Details

The automotive industry continues to grow and innovate at a rapid pace which may present challenges when it comes to protecting the best interests of the business. New types of agreements, customers, buyers and negotiation strategies have become daily topics of conversation.
To help seasoned supplier executives and those new to the industry gain a better understanding of various contractual agreements, the Original Equipment Suppliers Association (OESA), in partnership with Butzel Long, will host a “Supplier Legal Academy Series” designed to provide a “back-to-basics” approach for supply chain management in the current landscape, while looking ahead toward uncharted territory.

The first Academy will take place on May 30, 2019, at the MSU Management Education Center in Troy, Michigan, or via live webinar. The focus of this meeting is "Contracting the Right Way." Daniel Rustmann, shareholder,  and Sheldon Klein, shareholder, Butzel Long will discuss: 
  • Best Practices in Contract Formation
