ROSELAND, N.J./December 15, 2011 -- Connell Foley Partners Brendan Judge and Christopher J. Tucci, in conjunction with HB Litigation, hosted an In-House Legal Symposium held at the Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, on December 8, 2011. The event was attended by lawyers seeking qualified outside counsel to gain insight into best practices, and the opportunities and issues in bringing in outside legal help.
A special, complimentary event designed for corporate in-house attorneys, the Symposium was lead by knowledgeable “insiders” Judge and Tucci, whose approach offered a practical approach to many of the issues that lawyers encounter on a daily basis.
Judge and Tucci covered topics from litigation management to internal investigations, electronic discovery and consideration for attorney/client privilege. Attorneys examined considerations for national, regional and local partners and agreements, litigation management conflicts and resolution, and data and communications security.
Judge practices primarily commercial and banking litigation in federal courts, arguing antitrust, intellectual property, and contract issues on behalf of various bank, construction, manufacturing, and trucking industry clients.
Tucci focuses his practice in banking law litigation, lender liability litigation, commercial litigation, and general counsel; he is a nationally recognized authority in banking law and security matters, and serves as national counsel including a Fortune 100 insurance company and several financial institutions in banking law related areas, information breaches, corporate investigations, risk mitigation, and rapid response and crisis management.
“In our profession, we are regularly engaged in work that brings us together with others who have unique, specialized experience, to effectively manage our cases, either as mentors and role models or through meaningful partnerships and networks,” stated Tucci. “I am honored to have been asked to lead this type of platform and offer the kind of information other attorneys need, to deliver the highest quality service to their clients.”
