When you start your own business, there are many positive outcomes: becoming your own boss, creating an innovative product, or helping others achieve their dreams and goals. While risks are considered when starting your own business venture, most people don't expect the worst. 

However, there are circumstances where you put yourself and your business at risk for being sued. Fortunately, there are simple steps every business-owner can take to decrease the likelihood of litigation and, in the event the business is sued, to be prepared to act proactively.

Join commercial litigator Caroline J. Heller, shareholder at global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, in this jam session where she will discuss what her years as an attorney have taught her about how to avoid litigation, and what to do if you or your business is sued.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Proactive measures you can take to decrease the chances of litigation
  • The agreements your business should have in place with employees, vendors, and partners
  • Tips for how to proceed if you are sued.
