Partner Chris Palermo reviewed the Fifth Edition of Business and Commercial Litigation in Federal Courts in the May issue of Westchester Lawyer, the monthly magazine of the Westchester County Bar Association. The Fifth Edition added 26 new chapters on subjects of importance to commercial litigators, including Artificial Intelligence; Climate Change; Congressional Investigations; Corporate Litigation Reporting Obligations; Corporate Sustainability and ESG; Litigation Management by Judges; Third-Party Litigation Funding; and Virtual Currencies.
The Fifth Edition of Business and Commercial Litigation in Federal Courts, spanning 16 volumes, is a comprehensive procedural and substantive guide for commercial litigators and gets Chris’s complete endorsement. In his review, he observes that “the authors have been mindful to make their work a useful resource both for those already well-versed in a particular subject matter as well as those not previously familiar with it.” He also adds that it “provides a treasure trove of expert guidance to a litigator preparing to try any case, commercial or otherwise, as it includes a large number of substantive topics not normally associated with commercial litigation.” The Fifth Edition also provides extensive perspective from the bench. Among the principal authors are no less than 32 distinguished current or former judges.
