Jonathan H. Spadt, CEO & President of RatnerPrestia Moderates Upcoming Federal Circuit Global Series Webinar on International Trade
Philadelphia, PA | April 2020 – Jonathan H. Spadt, CEO & President of RatnerPrestia, will moderate the first 2020 Global Series Webcast “International Trade, Innovation and Enforcement in Our Evolving World” on Wednesday, April 15th from 12:00 to 1:00 PM EDT.
Hosted by The Federal Circuit Bar Association, the panel will explore the complexities of today’s international trade processes and how geopolitical dynamics are shaking the stability of the past few decades. The discussion will include observations on how the major reordering of trade has disrupted many traditional models, including dispute resolution among countries. Spadt recently commented on the timing of the webinar, saying “The current coronavirus crisis is accelerating what was already occurring in terms of disruptions to supply chains and the movement of R&D centers to countries that until recent times perhaps played little or no role in innovation.” Other panelists include The Honorable Timothy Stanceu, Chief Judge, United States Court of International Trade, Michael Franzinger, Partner, Sidley Austin LLP, Michael Sandonato, Partner, Venable LLP & Scott Kieff, Founder, Kieff Strategies LLC.
