LAS VEGAS – Small businesses and entrepreneurs often do not have experience in the pro-active steps to help them avoid common sources of litigation. Potential litigation can arise from client interactions, business agreements among partners, business-to-business contracts with vendors and other organizations, and even lack of regulatory compliance. With this in mind, Nevada State Bank is hosting a free webinar, “INSIGHTS: How to Reduce the Risk of Litigation,” on Tuesday, July 15, at 9 a.m. Pacific Time.
This webinar provides timely and practical advice designed to give business owners an overview of potential litigation issues their business may face, and “best practices” in reducing or confronting litigation. Topics covered can include:
• Why reduce the risk of litigation?
• The most common reasons that people litigate
• Strategies and “best practices” to help avoid litigation
• What to do if threatened with litigation
• Resolving disputes without resorting to litigation
The webinar will be moderated by Mario Joyner, VP/small business sales administrator, Nevada State Bank, and features expert panelists John S. Delikanakis, partner, Snell & Wilmer and Ray C. Jones, counsel, Snell & Wilmer.
