Business Law Section Liaison Update

| No Comments



The most recent meeting of the Business Law Section was held at the Cranwell Resort in Lenox, Massachusetts on October 3-5, 2013.

As in previous years, the Section offered scholarships to lawyers who had been admitted less than five years. A robust selection of CLEs was offered, ranging from a Digital and Cyber Liability Ethics to Creditors Attorney's fees and Valuations

The Section in their survey of the membership has found that people may not fully understand the depth and breadth of the section. The Business Law Section has active committees on banking, bankruptcy, corporations, derivatives and structured products, franchise, insurance, public utility, securities and technology and venture law. This breadth is a large portion of the value of joining our section. For those who are just beginning their foray into the practice of law, the interaction with seasoned practitioners is invaluable. We have been active in legislative initiatives, including the recent changes to New York's Not-For-Profit Corporation Law, and are currently working on proposed changes to New York Franchise Law.

In March, we are planning on a symposium on "The Life Cycle of a High-Tech Company" to be held in cooperation with Albany Law School. It should be an exciting program with an emphasis on being accessible to not only students, but also to lawyers in the field.

If anyone has any questions about the section or its committees and programs, please contact Sarah Gold, the chair of Membership for the section, at sg@goldlawny.com or 518-213-2345.
