An Evening for In-House Counsel: What you need to know about litigating in the Business Litigation Session v. ADR at JAMS

Goodwin Procter recently hosted “An Evening for In-House Counsel: What you need to know about litigating in the Business Litigation Session v. ADR at JAMS” in our Boston conference center. Panelists the Hon. Alan van Gestel (ret.), Hon. Margaret Hinkle (ret.), and Hon. Stephen Neel (ret.), all Goodwin Procter alumni, former Massachusetts Superior Court Business Litigation Session judges, and current JAMS neutrals, shared insights from their experience as trial judges and ADR neutrals. The discussion was moderated by Business Litigation Group Chair Brenda Sharton and Business Litigation Steering Committee member John Daukas.  The Panel surfaced ideas for in-house counsel to manage dispute resolution more efficiently and effectively, and discussed a broad range of advice for representing clients in the Business Litigation Session, and arbitration/mediation at JAMS. Goodwin Procter has represented clients in more than 100 cases before the Business Litigation Session since it was founded in 1996 by Judge van Gestel, the former head of Goodwin Procter’s Trial Department. In celebration of its 15th anniversary last October, BLS judges selected 100 “noteworthy or groundbreaking” cases, eleven of which involved Goodwin Procter attorneys.
