Diamond McCarthy Partner, Sofia Adrogué, will present at the 42nd Annual Page Keeton “Civil Litigation Conference,” Thursday, November 8, 2018. Alongside Hon. Caroline Baker, 295th Civil District, Sofia will speak on “Practical Considerations in Commercial Litigation and Business Torts.” Sofia serves as the Creator & Editor of Texas Business Litigation, a 1500+ page treatise on business litigation. Combining 50 plus cumulative years of practice and over 18 years on a state district court bench, Sofia envisioned a work that would serve as an encyclopedia on business litigation—from A to Z—including some of the unexpected issues that may emerge such as a bankruptcy proceeding or a criminal investigation, along with applicable ethical considerations. Included are the “Who’s Who of the Bar,” legendary trial lawyers and specialists, who have analyzed the following: (i) alternative dispute resolution; (ii) antitrust; (iii) bankruptcy ramifications in business litigation; (iv) breach of fiduciary duty claims in business transactions; (v) evaluation of business cases; (vi) contorts; (vii) corporate governance and regulatory proceedings; (viii) criminal law in business torts cases; (ix) damages; (x) discovery; (xi) employment law; (xii) experts; (xiii) fraud and negligent misrepresentation; (xiv) intellectual property and trade secrets litigation; (xv) ethics; (xvi) the liability case; (xvii) oil and gas; (xviii) preservation of error and appeal tactics; (xix) speech based torts: libel, slander, business disparagement, and invasion of privacy; (xx) third-party litigation finance; (xxi) business divorce; and (xxii) jury trial innovations.
