If you’ve been thinking about doing business in Canada or Latin America but are worried about the legal hoops your company has to jump through, clear your calendar for Friday.

That’s because April 20 is the date for the Business in the Americas Conference, an event hosted by the Cincinnati USA Hispanic Chamber, the U.S. Commercial Service and Frost Brown Todd, among others.

Here’s what makes this conference different from the many other business meetings that happen around town: More than 35 lawyers from every major country in the Americas will be there to talk about trade opportunities and answer specific questions about how to grow international business.

The conference isn’t free. Registration is $125. Click here for more information on that.

But Hispanic Chamber President Alfonso Cornejo notes that fee more than covers all the advice that attendees can get from lawyers who know the intricacies of business law in all these different countries.

Specific programs focus on such issues as getting paid, labeling currency issues and intellectual property.

Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. The program begins at 8:15 a.m. and runs until 5 p.m. It’s being held at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza downtown.
