When an organization is contemplating a large commercial agreement or outsourcing arrangement covering multiple service locations, subsidiaries, or affiliates, it should consider the advantages and potential pitfalls of using a single global agreement versus local (or “site-specific”) agreement. The efficiencies and advantages  of a global approach are many - a single negotiation, centralized legal and business review, ease of amendment and standard provisions to name a few. Local or regional agreements, however, have their advantages as well, like location specific terms and more flexibility in negotiations. So what's the right choice for your function? Explore your options and how to execute them in this informative panel discussion.
