On January 24, AABANY co-sponsored with the Chinese Business Lawyers Association (CBLA), Fordham Law School and Consilio a CLE program on Discovery and Investigations in China in the Costantino Room at Fordham Law School.

The CLE was presented in two parts. First was a panel on Discovery Issues in Chinese Litigations, moderated by Geoffrey Sant, Partner, Dorsey & Whitney. The panel included Hon. Andrew Peck, United States Magistrate Judge for the Southern District of New York; Kim Nemirow, Ropes & Gray; Kiran Raj, formerly from Department of Homeland Security; and Jamie Underwood, Alston & Bird.

The second panel was on Internal Investigations and Abiding by Local Laws and Regulations, moderated by Prof. Joel Reidenberg of Fordham Law School. The panel included Dan Whitaker, Consilio; Brian Chebli, JPMC; William McGovern, Kobre & Kim; Patience Bin, Mayer Brown; and Therese Craparo, Reed Smith.

A reception, underwritten by Consilio, followed the CLE program.

More than 100 attendees braved the stormy and rainy weather to take part in the progarm. Each panel was good for 1.0 CLE credits in Areas of Professional Practice so those who went to both earned 2.0 CLE credits total.

Thanks to everyone who came. We look forward to future collaborations with CBLA, Fordham Law School and Consilio.
