hlw Keeble Hawson will be bringing its legal expertise in international trading to a breakfast export event in Rotherham hosted by UK Trade & Investment.
Held at Fusion@Magna in Rotherham on October 15, the session is aimed at entrepreneurs seeking to take their first step in exports, businesses wanting top tips on expanding overseas operations – and for anyone wanting to meet contacts who can share their expertise and global networks.
Partner, Giles Searby, a high-profile specialist in commercial litigation and international trade, said: “We will be applying our experience to respond to questions from companies who need guidance about first time exporting in terms of how to contract the sale, what needs to be considered – and how to make sure you get paid.
“We also welcome approaches from more established traders seeking tips on topics that might centre on supply chain issues, managing cost and the division of risk under international commercial terms.”
The event will offer unique insights into finding success overseas and guests will also be able to ask business leaders how they overcame the export challenges they have faced.
Attendees will also receive a free copy of a new guide to international trade, Five Steps to Export, which offers simple advice on identifying new opportunities overseas and how you can find growth on foreign shores.
Organisations also involved in the session include the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership and Rotherham Investment & Development Office.

“Events such as this to help signpost them to experts who can help fulfil their international trade aspirations are invaluable.”
