Business Law and Business Litigation: Business Litigation Section Increasing Activity, Hosting Events in 2015
By: Jonathan Shirley, Steven Slovenski and Anthony J. Galdieri
The Business Litigation Section of the New Hampshire Bar Association will host informal roundtable discussions in the coming year on topics and trends in the law relevant to business litigators in New Hampshire.
The meetings will offer business litigators not only opportunities to learn from one another, but also to network and socialize.
The section will host its first meeting from 4-6 p.m., Jan. 14, at the offices of Nixon Peabody, located on the 14th floor at 900 Elm St. in Manchester. Gordon MacDonald will lead the roundtable discussion on navigating the new Superior Court Civil Rules, with practical insights into how the new civil rules work and their advantages and disadvantages for business litigators. The author of Wiebusch on New Hampshire Civil Practice and Procedure, MacDonald is uniquely familiar with the history and development of civil practice in New Hampshire. Light refreshments will be served.
Stay tuned for future announcements about business litigation roundtable discussions, which will focus on developments and best practices in data privacy, eDiscovery, preserving privileges, deposition taking, trial preparation, and changes in substantive law that impact the profession.
Whether you are new to the practice of law or a veteran business litigator, the Section meetings will provide you with a novel opportunity to continue to grow as an attorney and expand your professional network.
