It is my honor to serve you as Chair of the Business Torts and Employment Litigation Committee of the New York State Bar Association's Torts, Insurance, and Compensation Law (TICL) Section.

The purpose of this Committee is to provide its members with a forum in which to explore substantive issues in the areas of business torts and employment litigation, to share practice tips, and to develop and foster professional relationships and camaraderie among its members and the members of the TICL Section at large. The Committee is also interested in monitoring and discussing legislative proposals impacting its members and their clients.

One of my goals as Chair is to increase in-house counsel membership in the Committee by making it more relevant and valuable to those serving in that capacity. I would also like to invest in the future of the Committee through recruitment and mentorship of young lawyers and law students. Finally, I hope to take advantage of technological tools to facilitate the dissemination of information and promote member participation.

If you are interested in joining the Committee, please contact me at any time. If you are an existing member of the Committee, I encourage you to take advantage of the opportunities that exist through active Committee participation. For example, I encourage you to consider making a submission to the Committee Blog (, raising issues on the Committee ListServ, writing an article for the TICL Journal, or attending a TICL event. I also encourage you to consider serving as a mentor to young members of the Committee. It would be my pleasure to discuss these opportunities with you.
