Topic: “You Wanna Fight About It? Techniques for Resolving Business Disputes”

Executive Legal Professionals, PLLC welcomes new and returning attendees to its Nashville Preventive Law Luncheon series with a brand-new topic: “You Wanna Fight About It? Techniques for Resolving Business Disputes.”

In this entertaining, informative talk, Noel Bagwell will discuss solving disputes without resorting to litigation–commonly called Alternative Dispute Resolution or (“ADR”). In addition to covering information about the basic kinds of ADR (negotiation, mediation, and arbitration), Noel will discuss lesser-known ADR solutions and how to implement them in your business. Perhaps most interestingly, Noel will discuss the role Preventive Law plays in setting you up for ADR success, should a dispute arise in the course of operating your business. Plus, Noel will answer questions from the audience.
