Sara Jane Shanahan, chair of the firm’s Litigation Department and co-chair of the Business Litigation Practice Group, co-chaired the Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education’s (MCLE) 19th Annual Business Litigation Conference on February 7, 2020 and led the opening panel, “Year-in-Review: Top 10 Cases.”

This year’s conference brought attendees updates in business litigation and important case law, delivered in a dynamic, streamlined format by a stellar faculty of U.S. District Judges, U.S. Magistrate Judges, Massachusetts Superior Court Judges, and preeminent practitioners. The Judges discussed recent trends and fielded questions during the Business Litigation Session Judicial Panel and Federal Judicial Panel. Sessions also highlighted important updates on allegations of fraud and conspiracies, including Chapter 93A claims and securities matters, as well as valuable insights on and expert analysis of best practices for reaching and protecting assets.

MCLE is a nonprofit corporation organized pursuant to Chapter 180 of the Massachusetts General Laws and Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. It is governed by a board of trustees and assisted by curriculum advisory committees addressing nine distinct areas of legal practice.
