COMMON COMMERCIAL CONFLICTS 2019


Lost Profit Cases

Lost Profit Cases

Business does not always go as planned. When a vendor breaches their contract to supply key parts, a lender reneges on their loan commitment, or a fire decimates a central distribution facility, the impacted business may have grounds to seek compensation in the form of the profits it would have earned had everything just gone smoothly. In order to successfully win (or defend against) any such claim, one must compile and analyze certain types of documents and information, understand and apply appropriate methodologies, and present their case in a manner consistent with that which the court or trier of fact requires. In this webinar, the expert panel discusses the circumstances that warrant lost profits claims, key considerations for both the claimant and defendant, and how such claims will ultimately be evaluated.

Resolving Shareholder Disputes

When business owners come to the point where they simply can’t see eye to eye, success can become unfeasible. Disputes between business owners can arise from any number of issues and have varying   impacts on the actual business, ranging from simple distraction to total dissolution. Depending on the business and circumstance, the means for resolution may or may not be provided for in the relevant by-laws or shareholder agreement.  In this webinar, the expert panel discusses different types of shareholder disputes and corresponding remedies, including alternative dispute resolution, buy-sell agreement provisions, and share valuation considerations.

Defending Against Avoidance Actions

In the event of a bankruptcy, the debtor or trustee may opt to take legal action in order to recover money or property that was transferred by the debtor prior to going bankrupt. These actions, whereby such transfers are effectively reversed, are referred to as “avoidance actions.” In this webinar, the expert panel discusses the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code, common avoidance actions, and key considerations when planning for and defending against these actions.

Business Breakups

Premiere Date: 02/05/2019 11:00am

As any entrepreneur will attest, starting and operating a business comes with unique challenges. These challenges are a key reason that, by some estimates, half of the companies that are founded today will not exist four years from now. It can be argued that the effort and attention needed to find success precludes business owners from planning for failure. This webinar focuses on the realities of a failing business from the owners’ perspective. Join our panel of experts as they discuss the various considerations that should be given at the outset of start-up negotiations and through business breakup, including dispute negotiation and litigation.
