Start 02/08/2023 - 5:30 PM
End 02/08/2023 - 8:00 PM


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.


Topics include:

  • Consulting and expert testimony in Litigation
  • Importance of providing a business perspective in litigation; consequences for failure to do so
  • Case studies
    • Disney
  • Dealing with divergent interest in Directors & Officers (D&O) claims
  • Merger and acquisition (M&A)claims
  • Distinguishing causation from liability
