NCBA Antitrust & Complex Business Disputes Section Unveils Spectacular Lineup for Its 2020 CLE Program
Thomas H. Segars
Ellis & Winters partner Tom Segars, as vice-chair of the North Carolina Bar Association’s Antitrust & Complex Business Disputes Section, served as lead planner for the Section’s upcoming 2020 CLE program: Core Curriculum for Complex Business Litigators.
This CLE program, scheduled for Thursday, February 13, 2020, at the North Carolina Bar Center in Cary, takes an in-depth view of complex substantive areas pertinent to business litigation and corporate transactions including:
- North Carolina’s economic loss rule, as applied in recent federal- and state-court decisions;
- Arbitration as an efficient and effective means of resolving complex business disputes;
- Recent trends in state and federal enforcement of antitrust laws and related investigations;
- Methods of effectively valuing business interests and issues that arise in preparing and testing those valuations in litigation and other dispute-resolution contexts;
- Ethical issues that arise in disputes involving small, closely held businesses; and
- The role that receivership plays as a potential remedy in complex business litigation.
The program culminates with a “view from the bench” panel of the North Carolina Business Court Judges. During this presentation, practitioners gain uniquely valuable insights into the Court’s perspectives and get an opportunity to have their own questions addressed by the judges.
Anyone interested in attending can register for the program at the NCBA website.
