Walnut Creek Attorney Angela De La Housaye and Associates to Present March 10 Seminar on Strategies to Avoid Litigation

WALNUT CREEK, CA--(Marketwire - February 24, 2011) - Angela De La Housaye, founder of the Walnut Creek law firm De La Housaye and Associates, and Brendan J. Dooley, an attorney with the firm, will present a complimentary seminar on strategies to avoid litigation. The seminar will take place at 6PM, March 10 at the firm's San Francisco office, Stock Exchange Tower, 155 Sansome Street, Ste 620. Reservations are required for attendance.

The seminar will address two topics: "Drafting Contracts to Avoid Litigation Claims" presented by Angela De La Housaye; and, "How to Control Litigation, before It Ends up Controlling Your Company," presented by Brendan J. Dooley. Issues such as how to avoid a costly suit, how some companies are able to steer clear of the courts, what litigation hazards exist, and which ones pose the biggest threat to your business, will be addressed by both attorneys. 

"Avoiding litigation ahead of time is far preferable to the long, complicated and expensive court process," said Angela De La Housaye, founder of De La Housaye and Associates. "If a business owner understands the importance of a well drafted contract, they are much less likely to be exposed to a litigation claim. We refer to this as the 'silent litigant' -- the party that goes to another attorney and is told that they don't have a claim; you never actually hear from them because of the strategic contract construction. This is a huge value added for businesses." 

This seminar is one of a series of legal seminars presented by De La Housaye and Associates attorneys and other professionals. The next event will cover "How to Best Position Your Company to Avoid a Lawsuit," "Practical Estate Planning Issues: Assisting Parents and Family Members," and "Top Ways to Minimize Your Chance of a Tax Audit." It is scheduled for March 24 at the De La Housaye offices in Walnut Creek at 6PM.

The March 10 talk is complimentary, but space is limited and reservations are required. Contact Heather Larsen at 925-944-3300 or for information or to sign up.
