When business ventures and deals take a turn for the worse, how can parties mitigate their losses and assess their recovery? While commercial parties never wish to find themselves in court or arbitration, often times this cannot be avoided. However, an early stage assessment of losses can inform parties whether they should proceed with formal proceedings or consider alternative methods of resolving the dispute. 

Join us for a lively lunchtime panel featuring speakers who will provide their insights and advice to party representatives and in-house legal counsel on how they can prepare themselves best for if and when a dispute arises. 

Topics that will be discussed include: 

  • Pre-action considerations on determining and assessing losses 
  • The importance of engaging experts before formal proceedings are commenced to conduct an initial assessment; and
  • How to best preserve your case before an action is formally commenced to ensure that your rights are protected


  • 12:00pm - Registration with light refreshments
  • 12:30pm - Panel discussion
