Commercial and intellectual property trial lawyers are faced with complex and unique types of litigation every day. Rarely are two cases alike and most business litigators are called upon to handle litigation for a wide array of business entities in a variety of substantive areas including business torts, franchise, contracts, UCC, intellectual property cases and real estate matters. Businesses and their lawyers need to understand current trends in multiple and unique legal specialties to minimize the risk of litigation and at the same time be prepared to defend and litigate business decisions in court. The seminar is structured around a series of hypothetical cases involving many of these issues.
