Join our Virtual T.R.A.D.E. Commission Day on 22 October 2020 – We will deal with international commerce: virtually – hence truly T.R.A.D.E-style, truly international, truly AIJA.
Following AIJA’s very successful first Virtual Congress, we now invite you to meet and exchange virtually. International commerce and distribution will be the topics of our T.R.A.D.E. Commission Day as T.R.A.D.E. stands for Trade, Retail, Agency, Distribution and E-Commerce.
We will deal with the following:
- Time to T.R.A.D.E.
- Hot topics in international commercial contracts – Clauses that need your attention in distribution / supply / franchise.
- "Doping through the sole" – Interview with the General Counsel of On, Mr Christian Lenz.
- Speed networking – Meet your fellow AIJA members

AIJA Commissions Month
20 October - 20 November 2020
Programme - T.R.A.D.E Commission Day
Welcome address by the AIJA President - François Barré - and e-coffee with the T.R.A.D.E Commission Officers.
Janine, Jelle and Ben - the T.R.A.D.E. Commission Officers - will update you on future events, future plans and are happy to discuss and hear back from you!
There is not just one way to draft contractual clauses as they have to be adapted to the needs of the specific contract and parties involved.
However, there are mistakes we want to avoid in any case.
The speakers will focus on a selection of sensitive clauses in international commercial contracts. They will share their views on how (not) to draft them based on everyday practical experience.
Especially liquidated damages and “midnight clauses“ (choice of law and jurisdiction) will be discussed with the view to provide the best protection to the client’s needs (and wallet).
