Take C.A.R.E.: Strategies for Motivating and Engaging Your Team

In today's workplace, studies have shown how important it is to have "engaged employees." Organizations with highly engaged employees outperform organizations with average or disengaged employees. We also know "employees join an organization, but they leave because of their boss." So what can you do to build a high-performing team that is motivated and engaged to go beyond expectations and deliver superior service and value to your organization? This Quick Hit will use an example to highlight the strategies and daily practices for leaders to keep their smart, talented legal teams operating as a high-performing team that is challenged, engaged and motivated to excel. Judy Braun, President, Braun Leadership Consulting, former Chief Talent Officer at Seyfarth Shaw LLP

Presented by ACC's Litigation Committee and Kobre & Kim LLP

As the value of judgments and arbitration awards coming out of large-scale litigation continues to rise, so does the challenge of enforcing them. Sophisticated judgment debtors today often hold assets protected in a variety of structures in offshore financial centers around the world, which create challenging roadblocks to efficient and prompt recovery that can only be overcome with the right tools and strategies.

In this webcast, a group of internationally based attorneys, experienced in enforcing high value judgments and recovering hidden assets will share their first-hand insights into the international judgment enforcement and asset recovery process. The panel discussion will include analysis of effective asset tracing, utilizing specific legal tools available in the U.S., Europe, Asia and offshore jurisdictions as well as the alternative fee structures available to minimize costs and risks.
