February 8, 2017


Presentation Slides

San Francisco Partner Meryl Macklin and Chicago Partner Brian Sher will host a webinar on litigating indemnities and reps and warranties (and why what you thought you negotiated might mean something else) on Feb. 8.

Topics will include an introduction to representations, warranties and covenants; review of core reps and warranties; claims for breach of reps and warranties; indemnities: definitions, types and limits; and third-party claims.

Macklin is a trial lawyer with more than 30 years of experience trying and resolving complex business disputes. She has served as lead trial counsel for clients ranging from major corporations to small startups in dozens of high-exposure cases in state and federal courts around the country. Her trial experience has enabled her to develop targeted litigation strategies even when handling cases likely to settle, avoiding unnecessary and costly motion and discovery practice where possible.

Sher has experience in all aspects of the litigation and alternate dispute resolution process, including case strategy, depositions, hearings, trial and appeal. Sher represents media companies with respect to claims of defamation and health care companies with respect to claims of fraud, conspiracy, anti-kickback violations and violations of RICO. He also has represented corporations with respect to claims of tortious interference with business relations and breaches of covenants not to compete. Sher advises clients on methods of avoiding protracted litigation through proper business planning, negotiation, pursuit of injunctive relief and alternative dispute resolution.
