Kilpatrick Townsend attorneys Dustin Greene, Beth Winters, and Whitney Pakalka will take an in-depth look at the North Carolina Business Court and will provide information that practitioners (both in-house and outside counsel) can utilize when deciding whether to select the Business Court as the forum of choice for their cases. The presentation will focus on the opinions of the Business Court during 2018-19.
The CLE will include a brief overview of the Business Court and its judges. This year we will also cover how the business court handles electronic discovery issues, as compared to North Carolina’s other state courts. The presenters will then review the significant cases decided by the Business Court in the past year to provide attendees with a better understanding of how the Business Court functions and its jurisprudence. Analysis will include: the number of cases accepted for Business Court jurisdiction by category; geographic distribution of Business Court cases; a review of significant substantive opinions from the Business Court; and changes in how appeals are handled since the Business Court Modernization Act.

While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
