Does the threat of a lawsuit keep you awake at night?

It doesn’t have to. You can minimize your exposure by taking a few proactive steps. Learn how to protect your business from tort claims, implied warranty laws and litigation with four key contracts that work together:

  1. A written warranty
  2. A purchase/sales agreement
  3. A subcontractor agreement that includes indemnification, waiver of subrogation, dispute resolution, etc.
  4. A general liability insurance policy

This program is the expanded, Georgia-specific version of the International Builders’ Show presentation by Atlanta attorneys Scott Zucker and James Leach. Scott and Jim bring decades of experience to this discussion of Georgia court cases and risk management techniques.

Don’t pass up the opportunity to receive three hours of legal advice from two lawyers for the price of one seminar!
