Attorney Andrew Lieb Offers New CLE (Attorney Training) - Procuring Cause for Earning Real Estate Brokerage Commissions

Procuring Cause for Earning Real Estate Brokerage Commissions

As the housing market sours, there has been an uptick in homesellers refusing to pay their real estate brokers commissions. This has rendered the timing of when commission vests a hotly contested and litigated issue. In this course, you will learn the default rules for when commission vests, the meeting of the minds, and what options brokers and sellers have to change that default rule by supplanting the listing agreement with other triggers to commission. We will delve into how the default rule is modified when a real estate broker is cut out of a transaction as well as when a broker's breach of statutory / common law duties impacts their ability to claim commission. This is your one stop shop to learn how to litigate real estate brokerage law.

Registration is available here.

Attorney Andrew Lieb Offers New CLE for Attorneys: Proving Emotional Distress Damages in a Discrimination Case

Proving Emotional Distress Damages in a Discrimination Case

Discrimination law is top of mind for most attorneys and businesses throughout the country. We all like to discuss the latest news headlines and debate our culture wars to determine who is right and wrong, but in reality, that discussion misses the point. The real question is what is the cost of being wrong. For example, while pecuniary damages (such as back pay and front pay) are known and tangible, have you considered non-pecuniary damages in your case evaluation? In discrimination law, the largest category of damages is emotional distress, which can vary depending on the proof you have and your ability to prove it in court. In this course, Andrew Lieb will teach you how to gather and prove these intangible damages, which will make or break your discrimination case.
