Members of the bar and judiciary from across the commonwealth gathered at the Massachusetts Bar Association on Oct. 29 for the Second Annual Reception of its Complex Commercial Litigation Section. The Complex Commercial Litigation Section, or "ComCom" was created in 2014 to provide practitioners focusing in the areas of business litigation, bankruptcy, and intellectual property litigation a forum to share thoughts and ideas and participate in educational and networking events.

The reception included remarks from the Hon. Christine M. Roach and the Hon. Janet Sanders. Judges Roach and Sanders, both of the Superior Court's Business Litigation Session, provided an overview of the BLS along with some helpful pointers and practice tips. Attendees also had an opportunity to network with Hon. Robert Cordy, Hon. Brian Davis, Hon. Kenneth Salinger, Hon. Scott Kafker, Hon. Judith Fabricant and Hon. Christopher J. Panos at the event.  The evening was just the beginning of a year full of planned events and CLE programs for the section, which will culminate with its symposium on April 14, 2016.
