Course Avoiding and Managing Commercial Disputes: A Guide for In-house Counsel


Commercial disputes are a fact of life but can be a real headache for in-house counsel. Many in-house teams have little spare capacity and limited experience of litigation and face the challenge of using external resource effectively and keeping business disruption to a minimum.

This course is designed for in-house lawyers who do not have a contentious background. It will assist you to minimise the risk of disputes by identifying risk factors in procurement processes and implementing measures to mitigate these risks. It will help you to deal with disputes as they arise, examining the issues that should be considered, advising on compliance with disclosure obligations and providing strategies to reduce the cost and time incurred. It will reap dividends for a busy in-house lawyer.
