Message from the Section Chair
Chair, NYSBA Business Law Section
The Business Law Section, with a membership of approximately 3,500, is one of the largest Sections of the New York State Bar Association. Its members consist of attorneys whose practice involves some aspect of commerce or finance. Thus, the practice of the members is quite diverse – ranging from securities to banking, bankruptcy to consumer finance, franchising to insurance, among many others. To accommodate this breadth of practice, the Business Law Section has a range of committees that offer the practitioner with business clients information in similarly diverse areas: Bankruptcy; Banking; Business Organizations; Franchise, Distribution and Licensing, Derivatives and Structured Products; Securities Regulation; and the constantly evolving area of Technology and Venture Law. These Committees meet regularly to review current developments in their areas. Members enjoy the benefit of participating in discussions of developments in the business and financial services world and the opportunity to expand their professional network. Attendance at committee meetings and other scheduled Section meetings often can fulfill MCLE requirements.
The Section publishes the NY Business Law Journal, which provides practice-oriented insight and guidance relevant to the business law practitioner, with special emphasis on lawyers who practice in New York State.
The Business Law Section has been in the forefront of introducing, monitoring and evaluating legal developments in the areas of business and finance on both federal and New York State levels.
Members gain access to an extensive network of business law practitioners through our online Community.
