NORDIC HR LEGAL SEMINAR 2016
SEMINAR ON INVESTING IN OR SETTING UP BUSINESSES IN THE NORDIC REGION
On 12 April 2016, Setterwalls together with IUNO, Krogerus and Haavind hosts a seminar in New York City on investing in or setting up businesses in the Nordic Region. The seminar is aimed at HR professionals, in-house counsels and other participants in corporate teams with HR-responsibilities in the Nordic Region.
For the 8th year in the Nordics, and the 3rd year in New York, we repeat the success by inviting to a Nordic HR Legal Seminar, this time focusing on investing in or setting up businesses in the Nordic Region. The seminar takes place on 12 April 2016, includes breakfast and is free of charge.
During the seminar, you will get valuable information on how to invest in and set up businesses in the Nordic Region, from both a corporate and HR legal perspective, and how to avoid the potential legal pitfalls that many corporations face when entering the region.
A panel of experts from the Nordic countries will guide you through the key legal considerations surrounding investing in and setting up businesses in the Nordic Region. The seminar will focus on:
- HR legal due diligence - red flags for investment decisions
- Choosing the right legal entity (branch, local legal entity, no permanent establishment)
- Choosing the right employment relation (employment, hiring in, self-employed and consultants)
- Posting of workers / expats
- Minimum wage and other key considerations
The panel of experts includes:
Pål Kvernaas (Haavind, Norway)
