ABTL - Association of Business Trial Lawyers


Northern California

America’s most innovative and exciting companies may be headquartered in the Bay Area, along with the world’s most successful venture and private equity investors, but their most difficult and important disputes often are litigated 2,500 miles from home - in Delaware. Our expert panel, which includes highly respected and experienced Delaware judges who have authored thousands of corporate law opinions, will travel to Silicon Valley to discuss the trial and adjudication of matters in Delaware that involve shareholder rights, director independence, corporate governance, and local companies like Facebook, Zynga, Theranos, and others.
