Agreements are a key aspect of any business relationship, but what happens when the parties no longer agree? Preparing for that contingency when drafting agreements can make all the difference. Should you include mediation provisions, or focus on jurisdiction and venue provisions for litigation as your exclusive means for resolving a dispute? Understanding the strategic goals of a business relationship can help you decide on the most advantageous way to resolve any disputes that arise and ensure that important customer and supplier relationships continue for the long-term success of your business.
Judge Skelos will be joined by Crowell Moring attorneys, Sarah Gilbert, Esq., Partner, Anne Elise Herold Li, Esq., Counsel and Paul Pollock, Esq., Partner.
