Using actual case studies, our expert panel will explore the value of incorporating a business perspective into the litigation process.
While the fundamental focus is the litigation and settlement processes, often times the business issues developed and set forth exert a powerful impact on the settlement achieved or trial outcome.
The business issues discussed frequently involve governance and ethical considerations, which will be a major focus of our panelists’ discussions.

- Importance of providing a business perspective in litigation; consequences for failure to do so
