Davis Lux and the panelists discussed core elements and ongoing trends in chemical tolling agreements, how companies can spot and resolve potential problems, and how they can identify resources needed to minimize liability. 

“We also discussed strategies to develop win-win agreements between specialty/custom contractors — or “toll” contractors – and their customers that lead to long-term, valuable relationships,” Davis Lux said.
