Supreme Court Webinar: Upcoming Cases of Significance to Business
November 18, 2021
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM ET

Please join Holland & Knight's Appellate Team for a webinar examining the U.S. Supreme Court and cases of particular significance to the business community. This webinar will provide a timely analysis of current legal issues and a unique perspective on cases that will be decided by the end of the term in June 2022. We will discuss the current term, next year's outlook, recent trends, new developments and what pending cases may tell us about the broader direction of the court.

Our speakers all have extensive experience in Supreme Court litigation and the regulatory and substantive areas of law that the court will address. Of special note, Mr. Agarwal served as a law clerk for Justices Samuel Alito and Brett Kavanaugh (when the latter was a U.S. Court of Appeals judge).

This program is designed for attorneys, in-house legal personnel and outside counsel, as well as executives with compliance responsibilities.

We hope you can join us for this highly informative presentation.
