Thats the headline of this unique little conference Wahlstrom & Associates will be hosting, along with our friends at Brook Hollow Financial, on the sleeping giant of taxable damages litigation and settlement strategies.
Lets face it, how many settlement professionals and trial lawyers are tired of the same, old, dry, boring and pointless seminars that promise much and deliver little? Even more so they are tired of having their time and money wasted, as well as going to hotels so big they never get a chance to network with the people they went to meet. Plus, who wouldn't want to have some fun, get some sunshine, enjoy themselves and really learn how to launch their professional practice into a powerful new area filled with amazing potential?
The area of taxable damage litigation, coupled with the topic of showing trial lawyers and their advisors how to structure their legal fees, is the sleeping giant in litigation and professional practice. In fact it is estimated the taxable damage litigation market dwarfs the non-taxable, personal injury market, yet only a tiny fraction of lawyers and settlement experts make any effort to understand it and learn how to work in this important arena.
That said, then I think it is clear that it is time for lawyers and settlement professinals alike to take a break from the usual and come to Scottsdale, Arizona on April 12th and 13th and join us for an exclusive, limited attendance event held at the hip, mid-century modern Hotel Valley Ho.
The two day meeting will allow attorneys to receive up to 8 hours of CLE and financial professionals up to 10 hours of CE credit, all while networking with and learning from top professionals, staying at a 5 star boutique hotel and even, do we dare say it, attending a cocktail party at the classic Trader Vic's, all for far less then you would pay for your standard Gulag type convention and meeting elsewhere. Meeting people face to face, having fun, learning something that puts rocket fuel in your practice, all at prices that don't make you weep when the credit card bill arrives; what could be more old school than that?
As I mentioned, the hosts for this event will be Wahlstrom & Associates, the nations leading experts in managing taxable damage litigation, and Brook Hollow Financial, the industry innovators in structured legal fees and sophisticated solutions for trial lawyer financial strategies. Together they we will be bringing the top legal, tax, trial and management experts from around the country to discuss the amazing practice building opportunities for trial lawyers, as well as the settlement and tax experts that work with them,. We intend to cover the areas of taxable damage litigation such as employment law, discrimination cases, wrongful imprisonment, environmental claims, property loss on the Gulf Coast and Qui Tam/Whistleblower cases.
However, more than just a conference on what this area of law is all about, we will also have segments designed to show lawyers how to start KEEPING the money and fees you make through the use of structured legal fees. I mean what lawyer wouldn't like to learn how to make fully taxable fees either be taxed at lower rates, or even some cases, tax deductible using conservative, insured strategies offered by the largest financial providers in the US?
