Annapolis, MD

Venable attorneys Jim Hanks, Carmen Fonda, and Brian Field led training sessions for the Business & Technology Case Management Program and other trial and appellate court judges at the Maryland Judiciary Center hosted by Maryland Courts last week in Annapolis, Maryland. Maryland Rule 16-308 was adopted by the Maryland Court of Appeals to establish a business and technology case management program to enable each circuit court to handle business and technology matters in a coordinated, efficient, and responsive manner and to afford convenient access to lawyers and litigants in business and technology matters. Jim and Brian’s discussions included recent developments in Maryland case law on corporate governance, statutory and judicially created remedies of minority stockholders and members, and recurring procedural and substantive issues in stockholder derivative suits and class actions. Carmen’s discussion covered matters relating to partnerships, limited partnerships, and limited liability companies, including an overview and review of selected litigation issues.
