Opinions of Counsel in International Finance Transactions
Truman Bidwell was a panelist at a Strafford webinar, "Opinions of Counsel in International Finance Transactions," on May 27, 2021 (1:00-2:30 pm. EDT).
This webinar provided a framework for U.S. attorneys to give opinions in cross-border transactions, including enforceability, authority, choice of law, dispute resolution, no violation of U.S. law and more. The panel discussed how differences in custom and practice between U.S. and non-U.S. lawyers can affect these opinions and the assumptions, exceptions and qualifications that should be incorporated.
