The Benefits of the Commercial Division to the State of New York

Tuesday, June 7, 2022
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The Business Council is very pleased to offer a virtual presentation featuring a distinguished panel on the Commercial Division of the New York State Supreme Court.

The program will discuss improvements that have been made to the Commercial Division’s rules, procedures, and operations to be responsive to the business community’s needs, and to make the business litigation process in New York more efficient and predictable. A more hospitable and attractive environment for business litigation will encourage businesses to move to or expand or maintain their presence in New York State, and will thereby improve the lives of all New Yorkers.

Formally established in 1995, the Commercial Division has transformed business litigation and made the State a preferred forum for complex business disputes. Renowned as one of the world’s most efficient venues for the resolution of commercial disputes, the Commercial Division is available to businesses of all sizes inside and outside of New York.

Business Council members and non-members are invited to join us on June 7th to learn about this specialized court, the expertise of its judges, and the advantages and benefits it provides to businesses and to New York State.
