Session Watch

Decisions that Matter to Business People and their Lawyers

Massachusetts business lawyers know that the Business Litigation Session of the Massachusetts Superior Court (BLS) deals with complex business disputes, and is a great forum for resolving business lawsuits.

The BLS handles corporate litigation such as shareholder disputes, claims against corporate directors and officers, securities claims, merger and acquisition litigation, and intellectual property disputes. The BLS is also particularly suited to resolve other business litigation matters, including general commercial claims, insurance coverage disputes, complex construction claims, and real estate disputes.

As Massachusetts business litigators, OCM’s lawyers regularly represent clients in the BLS. As a service to OCM’s business clients, the Firm publishes Session Watch, which is a quarterly publication summarizing every significant BLS decision since April 1, 2004.
