Editor’s note: This column is based on the author’s presentation of the same title at Face & Body® Midwest 2012, which took place at McCormick Place West in Chicago in March.

Part I of this two-part column will address tactics skin care professionals can take in order to become less vulnerable to lawsuits, and Part II will address the issues of tax overpayment and estate planning.
