In Case You Hadn’t Heard…Need CLE? Attend GBQ’s Damages Case Update

October 31st, 2013 by Keith Hock

My Certified Public Accountant license expires at the end of the year and I still need to schedule some training between now and then to meet my Continuing Professional Education requirement.  In previous years I have been able to schedule a week of CPE in December in a warm spot like San Diego or Ft. Lauderdale.  I can also remember a year when I was desperately trying to complete self-study sessions during what was supposed to be a week of Christmas vacation.  As 2013 comes to an end, do you still need a few more hours of CLE to meet your state bar’s requirement?  If so, GBQ has the seminar for you (while we can provide the expertise, unfortunately, we cannot provide the warm weather)!

Over the course of the past year, courts have issued decisions regarding the admittance or exclusion of damages experts in a variety of cases (as my colleague, Rebekah Smith, and I have written about here, here, here, here and here).  New cases related to lost profits, business valuations and intellectual property damages are issued frequently.  These cases often provide useful guidance about what parties and experts should consider doing – and try to avoid doing – in making damage claims and providing expert reports and testimony.  Knowing the most current case law is critical when both making and defending damage claims.

GBQ is offering a seminar this winter to update you on some of the more interesting damages cases that have been issued over the past 18 months. The seminar will be led by Rebekah and me and will include summaries and discussion of cases involving lost profit, business valuations and intellectual property damages.  We hope that you will consider joining us for 1.5 CLE credits (Ohio and Kentucky approval pending) in our complementary seminar (including breakfast and validated parking) being offered in both Cincinnati and Columbus:
