Third Thursday Emerging Company Webinar:
What Happens If You Get Sued - Litigation Basics

Thursday, February 18, 2010

12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.

You're Served!  What do you do?

When your company gets sued, what steps should you take immediately and what do you need to be concerned about in the first 30 days of the case. 

Although cases take a long time to get to trial (and most never make it that far), the beginning of litigation is a critical time where several important issues must be considered.  During this time, you must:

  • Consider insurance issues.
  • Take steps to preserve evidence.
  • Identify counsel.
  • Consider the effects of litigation upon personnel decisions.
  • Consider procedural advantages available to defendants at an early stage.

This Webinar will covert these issue and much more for anyone whose job may occasionally include managing the defense of claims against the company.
