Benchmark Women in Litigation Forum

Benchmark Litigation is pleased to announce the return of the Benchmark Women in Litigation Forum to Palo Alto, taking place on June 28. 2016.

The Forum comes after a string of successful events run in New York and the enthusiastic reception of last year's inaugural launch in California.

Designed in consultation with top litigators, the Forum will encourage a peer-led, collaborative discussion on how to become a better litigator and improve your litigation strategies by asking:

  • What are the trends for enforcement actions involving public companies?
  • What are the business and career difference between the corporate industry and private field?
  • Does international arbitration allow parties to choose neutral forum?
  • How can you plan for career growth?
