Adams ABA-Panel Doubleheader

Later this month I’ll be on two ABA panels on consecutive days.

First, I’ll be on the panel for a November 20 ABA-CLE webcast entitled “Getting the Business Deal into the Contract.” It’s an encore performance of a panel discussion held at the ABA’s 2008 annual meeting. The other members of the panel are Tina Stark, executive director of the Emory Center for Transactional Law and Practice at Emory University School of Law, and Kevin Kyte, a partner at Stikeman Elliott’s Montreal office. The webcast starts at 1:00PM EST. Click here for more information.

And on November 21 I’ll be in Washington, D.C. at the fall meeting of the ABA Section of Business Law, on the panel for a session entitled “How to Get Judges and Juries to Interpret Documents as You Intended.” (The session starts at 10:00AM; click here for information about the fall meeting.) This session, too, is a reprise of a session from the 2008 annual meeting, but I wasn’t on that panel; instead, I was in the audience, biting my tongue. This time around the session is being put on by the Business and Corporate Litigation Committee; it will be interesting to have an audience of litigators for a change.
