This webinar will provide the accountant with a basic framework of Business Law including the judicial process. Emphasis will be placed on how the legal system can help/harm the accountant’s client including how to avoid a lawsuit through maintaining both “ethical” behavior and effective “negotiations.”  

A review of the “judicial process,” alternatives to litigation including “arbitration” and “mediation,” and the client’s business structure (from a legal perspective), will be displayed.

The webinar will also cover the nature and characteristics of “contracts” (promissory note/ lease), “problem loan” situations, “collection” efforts, judgments, repossession, foreclosure, short-sale, and deed in lieu of foreclosure. Additionally, “bankruptcy” and “banking regulations” will be discussed.
