Co-Managing Director, Devon Williams, will be a featured panelist at the 2021 Antitrust & Complex Business Disputes Law Section CLE, hosted by the North Carolina Bar Association.
She will be joined by Kim Gatling (Fox Rothschild LLP), Danielle Gray (Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina), and Justin Outling (Brooks Pierce McLendon Humphrey & Leonard LLP) for an hour-long discussion about important diversity, inclusion, and bias issues that attorneys face. Panelists will also share their perspectives and experiences regarding recruiting and promoting diverse legal talent and creating a more inclusive environment. Rob Harrington (Robinson Bradshaw & Hinson PA), will moderate the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) forum.
The DEI panel is one of two engaging discussions for the one-day event. The second, frequently regarded as the highlight of the section's annual CLE, features valuable insight about practice before the business court from the perspectives of sitting business court judges.
