Complex litigation in North Carolina is, well, complex, and it is becoming more so every day.

This program takes a deep dive into several substantive areas of the law to equip business litigators with the know-how to issue-spot and advocate most effectively for their clients in an ever-developing legal and technological environment.

Hear from a distinguished panel of judges and leading attorneys on a broad range of important topics, including:

  • Identifying potential data breaches and mitigating their damage
  • Recent developments in trade secrets litigation
  • The relationship between contract disputes and claims under Chapter 75-1.1
  • Navigating parallel criminal and civil proceedings
