Liability Concerns for Small Businesses that Use Drones
May 24 | 10:30 - 11:30
Taught by attorneys Brandt Madsen and Alan Farkas, SmithAmundsen LLC

More and more businesses are making use of unmanned aerial systems, also known as
drones. On one hand, drones may alleviate the safety and liability concerns that arise when an employee is tasked with a particularly hazardous activity. Yet, on the other hand, drones raise all sorts of additional liability and damage concerns. Brandt Madsen and Alan Farkas, of SmithAmundsen will share tips on how companies can protect and insulate themselves from these concerns while enjoying the benefits associated with drone operations.

Business Breakthrough Webcast Series

The Strategic Business Breakthrough Series, a program designed to help executives understand the interactions of the separate parts - the natural forces that affect a business - rather than evaluate them in isolation. This requires executives to hone a set of new skills to become accurate-thinking strategists who have mastered the art of foresight-based insight, a core principle underpinning the curriculum of this exceptional program.
