Goodwin Procter Announces Business Litigation Reporter

Goodwin Procter LLP, a national Am Law 50 firm, today announced the launch of the Business Litigation Reporter, a first-of-its-kind publication that reviews key cases and important developments in dedicated complex civil and business litigation sessions and related courts across the country.

Written by partners in the firm’s Business Litigation Group, the Business Litigation Reporter focuses on those cases that most directly affect the business community. Each issue also features a “corner article” that provides analysis and discussion of a single topic of particular importance to in-house counsel and senior management at companies across a broad spectrum of industries.

The Business Litigation Reporter reviews cases in business litigation courts nationwide including California, Delaware, Massachusetts, and New York. These states, among others, have courts specifically dedicated to hear complex business litigation matters. The current edition of the Business Litigation Reporter covers cases ranging from arbitration clauses to shareholder inspection rights and fraud claims.

“Goodwin Procter attorneys are continuously litigating cases in complex civil and business litigation sessions across the country, and we’re seeing new trends and developments that our clients – and members of the broader business community – need to know about,” said Brenda Sharton, Chair of Goodwin Procter’s Business Litigation Group. “We hope that Goodwin’s Business Litigation Reporter will become a ‘must-read’ publication for anyone whose business may be impacted by recent developments in the leading business litigation courts across the country.”

The inaugural issue of the publication includes a feature article by Business Litigation partner Jeffrey Simes. Titled “Seven Things You Should Know about Arbitration Clauses,” this corner article examines arbitration clauses and the often-overlooked implications of whether and how to arbitrate.

The Business Litigation Reporter is available on www.goodwinprocter.com.
