Corporate Litigation & Investigations Forum

Lansdowne Resort and Spa, Leesburg, VA

May 21–23, 2023


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.
