When business transactions go bad – either because they fail on their own terms or they never reach the closing table – there are often recriminations, accusations of bad-faith conduct and threats of litigation.  The parties negotiating these transactions are subject to certain standards of conduct which, if violated, give rise to financial liability. This area is also fraught with business torts, including tortious interference with a business expectancy, fraudulent and negligent misrepresentation and breach of the duty of good faith and fair dealing. This program will provide you with real-world guide to the standards of conduct governing the negotiation and execution of business transactions, the circumstances in which litigation and liability most commonly arise, and how to mitigate that risk when putting deals together for your clients.
