By Tom Segars

Happy New Year! One special delight of ringing in another year is knowing that the Antitrust & Complex Business Disputes Section Annual Meeting and CLE is right around the corner.  The CLE is always a wonderful opportunity to network with others, to learn about matters that truly affect our practice, and to fulfill any last-minute CLE needs.  This year’s CLE on February 13, 2020, will be no exception.

Core Curriculum for Complex Business Litigators features a lineup of dynamic speakers to present on a broad range of topics.  The agenda includes deep dives into substantive legal areas that many of us encounter regularly:

  • North Carolina’s economic loss rule;
  • Ethical issues that arise in closely-held business disputes; and
  • The law of receivership.

Three exceptionally qualified panels will bring diverse perspectives on areas of practical significance to our Section membership:

  • Arbitration as a means of resolving complex business disputes—with practical tips and empirical data about the process;
  • Developments in recent antitrust initiatives, investigations, theories, and major enforcement actions from the Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, and state attorneys general; and
  • Particularly difficult business valuation issues—with insights for working with expert witnesses from both lawyers and business valuators.

The program will culminate with a “view from the bench” panel presentation of the North Carolina Business Court Judges.  Attendees will have the unique opportunity to have their own questions addressed by the Court.  Anyone who has seen this presentation in previous years will tell you that it is truly a must-attend for those of us who practice before the Business Court regularly.

If you have not yet done so, please sign up here.  I hope to see you there!
