The Massachusetts Bar Association’s Complex Commercial Litigation Council invites you to its Eighth Annual Complex Commercial Litigation Conference in person at Suffolk University Law School. This year's conference keynote speaker will be Supreme Judicial Court Justice Dalila Argaez Wendlandt. Justice Wendlandt was appointed to the SJC by Gov. Charlie Baker on Dec. 4, 2020. Prior to this appointment, Justice Wendlandt served as an associate justice on the Appeals Court from 2017 to 2020.

Justice Wendlandt clerked for Hon. John M. Walker Jr., of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. She joined the firm of Ropes & Gray LLP in 1997, eventually becoming a partner in the Intellectual Property Litigation Group. Her practice focused on counseling clients in such diverse industries as semiconductor manufacturing, medical devices and pharmaceuticals, with particular emphasis on electro-mechanical devices and controls algorithms, regarding patent and trade secret misappropriation litigation. Her active trial and litigation practice included a successful appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court challenging a federal statute on constitutional grounds.

Conference highlights include:

  • A panel of distinguished jurists: U.S. District Court Judge Allison D. Burroughs, Massachusetts Superior Court Judge Hélène Kazanjian from the Business Litigation Session, and Massachusetts Superior Court Judge Debra A. Squires-Lee.
  • A second panel on intellectual property issues that arise in business litigation will feature experienced attorneys Krish Gupta from Dell Technologies, Jennifer Furey from Goulston & Storrs, and Justin A. Kesselman from ArentFox Schiff.
  • A networking reception to follow programming.

This conference is offered as a hybrid. Attendees can attend virtually but are strongly encouraged to attend in person. We will send information on remote participation prior to the program. The conference will be held in-person at Suffolk University Law School on Tuesday, April 25. Registration opens at 2:00 p.m. with programming to follow from 2:30-5:30.

Registration for this conference is required by 9 a.m. on Monday, April 24.
