Commercial disputes often involve the balancing of financial exposure against other meaningful business interests. In some cases, litigation can quickly become “bet-the-company” cases. By understanding and evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of your position early on, your company can avoid the perils of missteps in the early stages of litigation.

In conjunction with the publication of Mayer Brown’s Managing the Early Stages of Commercial Litigation: Critical First Steps, our Commercial Litigation group is pleased to invite you to a series of four one-hour webinars intended to assist in-house counsel with key legal strategy for issues that often arise early in a matter. Additionally, for in-house lawyers who do not often handle litigation, but who find themselves charged with managing a lawsuit, we will highlight many of the issues that arise during the early stages of a lawsuit and identify important elements to be considered.

Please join us for the third program in the series.
