How to Stay out of Court: Lunch and Learn with CMBA and The Gertsburg Law Firm-Member Event
Everyone knows how painful lawsuits are. They’re time-consuming, energy-consuming, distracting and expensive. Here’s a dirty little secret that every lawyer knows: most business lawsuits and investigations, or exposure from them for damages, fines and expenses, are entirely preventable if a company follows some simple pre-emptive steps. The lunch and learn will begin with a presentation by Alex Gertsburg, CEO of the Gertsburg Law Firm and CoverMySix, who will pass along some proven strategies for saving companies boat-loads of money both inside and outside the courts. Afterward, CMBA Director Becky McMahon will moderate a panel discussion composed of in-house and outside attorneys about legal minefields that businesses routinely fall into and need to avoid in their operations.
Alex Gertsburg has worn four hats in his 17-year legal career including serving as a business litigator with a large law firm, in-house counsel with a large corporation, and an officer with a line-haul truck company in the Army with a year of combat deployment in Iraq. He is currently the CEO of CoverMySix and head of the Gertsburg Law Firm in Chagrin Falls.
