CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) March 10, 2016
Business owners and executives, and the attorneys and other professionals who advise them, need to be prepared for the possibility that ordinary business activities will lead to litigation. Internal disputes sometimes arise among the owners, shareholders, and investors who participate in a business. Businesses themselves often face disputes with business partners, vendors, suppliers, and creditors. Financial Poise’s Complex Financial Litigation series will examine the common types of business litigation and will help explain the common issues that arise in these disputes.
Join leading experts in this field as they walk through discussions of these complex topics in plain English so that you are prepared when the next dispute arises.
As with all Financial Poise™ webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, and listeners will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all of the programs.

Business owners and management often face circumstances where an outside business partner, vendor, or supplier fails to live up to an agreement. When that happens, the harmed business must consider whether to make a claim seeking repayment of profits lost as a result of the problem. Asserting an effective claim to recover lost profits requires understanding how the courts will measure the lost profits so that the claimant can assemble necessary information to support the claim. Defending against a claim for lost profits necessitates understanding the common methods to reduce or even eliminate lost profits as a viable measure of damages. In this webinar, the expert panel will explain when businesses may seek damages for lost profits, what they need to prove to recover, how defendants can oppose these claims, and how courts analyze these claims.
