The Massachusetts Bar Association hosted a Nov. 5 reception to celebrate the launch of its newest section: Complex Commercial Litigation. The reception included members of the legal community and judiciary, including Superior Court Business Litigation Session Judges Christine Roach, Mitchell Kaplan and Janet Sanders, in addition to Superior Court Chief Justice Designate Judith Fabricant and former Business Litigation Session judges Stephen Neel and Margaret R. Hinkle.

The MBA's creation of the Complex Commercial Litigation Section represents an important expansion to the MBA's Section Council membership. The section includes committees from IP, Business Litigation and Bankruptcy, which will allow ComCom to put on education programs and a symposium that reflects the synergy between all areas.
