Litigating Partnership Disputes

Litigator Brent Turman provides a cautionary tale about the pitfalls of working closely with others without a written agreement in place. When informal ventures succeed beyond measure, best friends can turn into worst enemies. Turman explains how that exact scenario took place years ago, leading to a fight over royalties stemming from three books from the New York Times Best Sellers list.

Turman talks about how his trial team secured a $13.2 million judgment for the client after the jury found she was a partner in the original publishing company. The jury’s findings were based not on a fully-executed agreement, but on all of the founders’ conduct in operating the business.

Trial Skills CLE – What Kanye Can Teach Us About Litigation

This webinar seamlessly weaves trial tips and ethics into the story about an unlikely source of knowledge. Through the story of the rise and fall (and rise again) of a Billboard regular, Turman highlights important lessons litigators can learn and apply to their practices. The lessons include how to properly structure questions during a cross-examination, details attorneys should pay attention to in the courtroom and the different strategies litigators can use when communicating with a jury.
