Description:  Any attorney who represents business clients will benefit from this informative course. As business, professional (e.g., law or medical), and real estate entities (e.g., partnerships and corporations) are formed, the desire and intent for a successful future may cause there to be, intentionally or unintentionally, a reduced focus on potential disputes and how they can affect the entity’s viability. “Commercial divorces” raise many unexpected and difficult issues that planning and risk management can avoid or mitigate. 
Our expert panel will provide those who attend with insights on the pitfalls and best practices to better serve the client from business “prenup” to “divorce” and anywhere in between. Those who attend this class will:

Be alerted to the problem areas and gain a better understanding of what can go wrong and how to deal with such issues
Learn to analyze various provisions/terms of relevant agreements (including business formation, governance, and buy/sell documents) in the context of a possible commercial divorce
Be able to better structure future agreements to avoid some of the pitfalls
Be informed of the benefits and drawbacks of litigating, arbitrating, and mediating commercial divorces disputes.

By attending this class, litigators will be better able to understand the business/transactional issues, and business/transactional attorneys will better understand the litigation perspective.
