The Massachusetts Bar Association community welcomes back our Complex
Commercial Litigation members to the Seventh Annual Complex Commercial

This year’s keynote speaker is Massachusetts Superior Court Chief Justice Heidi E. Brieger. Judge Brieger was appointed by Governor Deval L. Patrick to the Superior Court in 2012. She serves as the regional administrative justice for civil business in Suffolk County and chairs the Superior Court Education Committee. She previously served as the chief of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force in the Massachusetts U.S. Attorney’s Office beginning in 2006, following her service as a prosecutor in that office since 1992. She also served as a law clerk to Hon. Andrew A. Caffrey, chief judge of the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts. Judge Brieger is a graduate of Smith College and Boston College Law School.
