Achromic Point would like to invite you for our upcoming seminar on “The Role of Risk Analysis In Dispute and Litigation Management” along with “FTI Consulting” as Principal Partner “Aarna Law Advocates”as Knowledge Partner and “Lawyers Club India” as Online Media Partner in Delhi on June 27, 2019 at Hotel Holiday Inn.
Risk Analysis In Dispute and Litigation Management is intended to provide management with an early, concise evaluation of the risks and costs associated with a particular piece of litigation –whether a plaintiff case or a defense case. Many of these cases settle after expensive discovery, all too often on the eve of trial; but many times the parties know or could have readily learned most of the key facts relevant to the dispute without incurring much of this expense.
This seminar works on the same path and intends to delegate the overall skillset of risk assessment in the events of dispute and litigation.

Session – 3
USING INSOLVENCY PROCEDURES DURING LITIGATION TO MAXIMISE ASSET RECOVERIES
At the core of any piece of litigation is the ability to make recoveries. Increasingly, there are risks in enforcing Judgments and Arbitration Awards, particularly in multi-jurisdictional matters. This session explores how some of these risks can be alleviated or even negated at the very beginning of a dispute, whilst also touching on options for Enforcement when legal remedies have been exhausted. Discussion points include:
- What are the different insolvency processes which can assist with the asset recovery process
- How can these processes assist with recovering assets across borders?
- Case studies of insolvency processes being used effectively during litigation
Session – 4
SHAPING AND MANAGING YOUR RISK APPETITE
- Analyzing the evolving GC role and its broader skillset expectations: is the modern GC the guardian of the ethical risk or legal risk?
- Reputational damage and its far-reaching consequences: different businesses have different risk appetites, but do they always fully understand the long-term consequences of reputational damage and the risk they are willing to take?
- Given that the way litigation is being managed has changed over the years, with parties involved often using the media as a tool, how is this impacting your strategy and decision-making process?
