The Detroit Institute of Arts, in the Diego Rivera Room

Since its inception, Mark and his firm have been instrumental in organizing and producing the State Bar of Michigan’s Annual Symposium on Business Law, in conjunction with the Wayne State University Law School and its Journal of Business Law. Over the years, the Symposium has grown to include dozens of the top practitioners and academics in the field of business law, as well as partnerships with dBusiness, The Litigation War Room, and others.

The material and presentations from the Symposium provide outstanding resources for business owners and their lawyers alike, including presentations on negotiation, corporate governance, discovery, expert witnesses, damages theory, and pre-suit investigation and due diligence, all of which can be unearthed in the Symposia Archives.

The Fifth Annual Business Law Symposium is being held on Thursday, February 16, 2023 at the Detroit Institute of Arts, Diego Rivera Room, from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m. This year’s Symposium, “The Art of the Practice” will explore various aspects of litigation practice, law firm management, and select substantive areas of law. The format will consist of lectures and roundtables, with audience participation encouraged. Topics discussed will include the “arts” of selecting experts, settling cases, navigating the Business Courts, cross-examination, law firm management, intellectual property protection and corporate oppression and fiduciary breach, including discussion of the Franks v. Franks case.

“[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
