CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) February 08, 2016
Business owners and executives, and the attorneys and other professional 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 their business partners, vendors, suppliers, and creditors. Financial Poise’s Complex Financial Litigation series explores the most common types of business litigation and the issues that arise in these disputes.
Join leading experts in this field as they walk through discussions of these complex topics in plain English in preparation for 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. Webinars through West LegalEdcenter offer CLE and CPE credits.
Episode #1 of the series, COMMON ISSUES AND STRATEGIES IN BUSINESS BREAKUPS, (Register Here) airs on February 17th at 2pm CST and features moderator Jack Barber of Crowe Horwath LLP and panelists Katherine Puffer of VH Valuations, Adam Russ of Frantz Ward LLP and Gene Geekie of Arnstein & Lehr LLP.
When times are good, business owners and advisors usually do not plan for what will happen if the business eventually breaks up. Sometimes this oversight arises from an unwillingness to plan for difficult times, but more often it happens because owners and advisors are focused on starting up the business and do not carefully consider how to handle a breakup if things do not go as planned. This webinar explains common issues that arise when a business is not working anymore and the owners decide to break up. The expert panel will discuss issues that should be considered when a business is formed, terms to include in formation documents that anticipate break ups, and ways to resolve break up disputes through negotiation or litigation.
