As experienced professionals, we have mastered the art of presenting alternatives to our clients, including assessing their needs, and suggesting potential solutions. Typically, client service professionals follow a standard script, but we recognize when a unique issue presents itself, a new thought process must be innovated for an optimal result. Adapting to the facts and circumstances and tailoring solutions is nothing new, but COVID-19 is fundamentally changing how businesses operate. Financial and legal professionals must determine the new set of questions to ask. In an upcoming Zoom Conference Call between Legus and Cushman & Wakefield, Pamela O’Neill and David Benick will be presenting and moderating a discussion on how the legal community may need to reconfigure their review of financial analyses prepared by expert witnesses and how to better address their client’s financial questions in the context of a new way of operating during and post the pandemic. We recognize that due diligence questions with clients will be modified, and we plan to share our opinion of those considerations that will be most relevant in the future. In addition, to operating effectively, businesses will need to adjust their own financial review and analyses, and we will highlight where the emphasis will be revised. Under a new financial profile, we will discuss how counsel can better inform their clients on various options from a financial perspective to manage the litigation.
