Jessica Bissey to Speak at the 2017 NYU School of Law’s Conference on Legal Issues in Social Entrepreneurship and Impact Investing – in the US and Beyond

Transactions across borders involve complex issues with conflicting perspectives on management and operations, differences in accounting and financial reporting, governance and control provisions, tax treaties and tax planning, bilateral investment treaties, currency exchange and repatriation risks, securities law issues on establishing investment vehicles as impact investing reaches a broader range of investors, diligence challenges due to remoteness, choice and conflict of laws, extraterritorial laws, language issues, and dispute resolution and enforcement.

MoFo Impact’s Jessica Bissey will speak on this panel on Wednesday, May 24 to discuss the issues that must be considered in planning and negotiating a cross-border impact investment, approaching documentation, and blending conflicting practices in a way that provides risk protection and results in a viable transaction.
