Corporate Litigation & Investigations Forum

Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village, Westlake Village, CA

October 23–25, 2022


Today’s corporate litigation function must master not only the pursuit of and response to new matters but the ability to anticipate and prepare for what looms beyond the horizon.

Modern litigation is increasingly complex, as new laws evolve around a dynamic marketplace, and old laws find unexpected application in the digital era. Corporate litigation leadership must be nimble and creative but also keenly aware of where the law is headed in order to protect fully the company’s interests.
