On February 19, 2013, Mark Furman, along with Hon. Stephen E. Neel (Ret.) of JAMS, Boston, presented "'Cost-Effective' Business Litigation" as part of the Massachusetts Bar Association's Lifecycle of a Business Series. Before both a live and online audience, Mark discussed his over thirty years of business litigation experience and shared some tools he has learned in resolving these types of disputes in a cost-effective way for his clients. Along with Judge Neel, Mark also explained factors to consider in deciding whether alternative dispute resolution or programs to control the cost of discovery could be useful in a particular case.
