For the third straight year, Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner is the presenting sponsor of the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce’s annual Economic Forecast Breakfast. Approximately 500 business leaders will gather Oct. 19 to hear where the region is and where it’s moving in the year ahead from authorities on the local, regional, national and global economy.
BCLP Partner Evan Chuck, head of the firm’s China practice, resident in the Los Angeles and Shanghai offices, will address the current trade wars and their impact on global supply chains.

Chuck is the firm’s Shanghai office liaison and served as managing partner of the Shanghai office for seven years. He was also the firm’s International Trade Practice Group leader for nearly seven years.
