The program, which has been organized and produced since its inception by Troy attorney Mark Rossman (pictured above) of Rossman PC, annually attracts some of the top practitioners and academics in the
field of business law. Three panel discussions – featuring perspectives from young lawyers, expert witnesses, and judges – highlighted the program, which also included a presentation on “The Art of the Opening Statement” by E. Powell Miller of The Miller Law Firm.
