Not all deals close, and some transactions lead to litigation. Litigators involved in representing a client in a failed deal must become familiar with many new terms and phrases, and it is helpful to have an understanding of the normal deal process. This allows a thoughtful lawyer a better understanding of potential claims, additional discovery possibilities, and inquiries to pursue in cross-examination. Whether the deal involves a limited liability company, corporation, or other entity, the goal of this course is to prepare lawyers to maximize the chance of success in each case.
