On Oct. 23, 2019, the Complex Commercial Litigation Section Council hosted a panel discussion at Sherin & Lodgen LLP on “Litigating Business Torts.” The panel featured Judge Karen Green of the Massachusetts Superior Court, who will begin serving a term on the Business Litigation Session in 2020. Judge Green was joined on the panel by attorneys Aliki Sofis of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP and Joshua Lewin of Bowditch & Dewey LLP, and damages expert Michael Gordon of StoneTurn. The panel was moderated by Section Council member Ryan McManus of Hemenway & Barnes LLP. The lively discussion focused on the unique considerations that arise when litigating business tort cases, how to present a client’s position as a compelling narrative, and how to try complex business disputes to a jury. The discussion was followed by a reception for the panelists and attendees hosted by Sherin & Lodgen.
