Symposia Archive

Since its inception, Mark has hosted the State Bar of Michigan’s Annual Symposium on Business Law and Corporate Oppression, in conjunction with Wayne State University Law School and the Journal of Business Law. Each year the firm’s attorneys devote countless hours to the Symposium, and, as a result, the program has grown to include dozens of the top practitioners and academics in this field who speak in Detroit and Grand Rapids. 

The material and presentations from this Business Law Symposium, catalogued in this archive, provide an outstanding roadmap to the management and litigation of a fiduciary separation, as well as resources for clients and lawyers alike, including presentations on negotiation, corporate governance, discovery, expert witnesses, damages theory, and pre-suit investigation and due diligence. This is truly a valuable archive for anyone interested or affected in any way by business law. 

While all of these Business Law Symposia are instructive and interesting, the Third Annual event was what might truly be called “global omnibus,” with its two dozen speakers and wide-ranging expanse of subject matter that was covered over two nights in Grand Rapids. The Michigan State Bar, Business Law Section catalogued each of the presentations into its digital library and provided a very user-friendly format.

“[T]he symposium focused on subject matter that is “very germane, as I am seeing more corporate separations since this pandemic started than ever before,” according to attorney Mark Rossman, who served as the principal moderator and host of the two-day event. – Detroit Legal News, 11/27/2020
