AmCham Shanghai's Legal and Automotive Committees jointly invites you to attend Global Trends of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles on Monday, March 12 from 11:30 AM - 13:30 PM at the AmCham Shanghai Conference Center.

Connected and autonomous driving technology presents a wide range of business opportunities, but the pace at which it is developing, combined with the evolving global regulatory landscape, poses a number of novel and challenging legal issues.

Hailed by many as the third industrial revolution, the automotive sector is already undergoing a period of rapid transformation arising from the development of connected and autonomous driving technology. It is not the only sector that stands to be radically altered—the possible applications of this technology are far-reaching and straddle a variety of different sectors including aerial, marine, public roads, private and public transportation, space, military, agriculture, mining and many others.

David Coulling and Philip Pfeffer, both Partners at Herbert Smith Freehills will lead a discussion on the following issues:
  • The evolving regulatory landscape for connected and autonomous vehicle technology across the EU, U.S. and Asia
  • M&A trends, structures and challenges

Following the presentation, will be a panel discussion with John Cheng, Executive Director, Vehicle Electrification and Autonomous Vehicles at Ford Asia Pacific, Michael Wang, VP of Asia Technology/Director of Cloud & Enterprise R&D China Customer Advisory at Microsoft, David Coulling, Partner at Herbert Smith Freehills, Philip Pfeffer, Partner at Herbert Smith Freehills, and other industry experts. The panel will be moderated by Gentry Sayad, Partner at Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton.
