Do you really need to "bet the business" when your company becomes entangled in litigation? The contributors to this blog like to think not. But avoiding serious legal liability takes plenty of hard work, good information, guidance and planning. That's where this blog comes in.
The goal of the Don't Bet the Business blog is to help business executives and corporate risk managers anticipate and deal with the litigation risks that inevitably stem from common business situations. While not all business risk can be eliminated, much of it can be anticipated and managed.
Knowing what you don’t know is a first step towards selecting and implementing sound business practices and timely planning. When unanticipated litigation does happens and you find yourself staring into the financial abyss that comes with it, knowing how to end the dispute, quickly and efficiently, can be just as important to the bottom line.
This blog will include discussion of the latest court decisions and changes in legislation that can affect your business. We also will offer helpful reminders about existing laws and practices that you may not even know you need to know.
The content provided in the Don’t Bet the Business blog is not intended to provide legal advice, and the discussions contained herein should not be applied to any fact-specific situation. Always consult an attorney directly to address any specific legal questions or needs you may have.
