Business Law

Steven J. Keeler, Chair

The Business Law Section continues to serve the needs of Virginia lawyers by providing programming and collaboration for those members who practice or have interest in substantive areas relevant to business law practice.

The Business Law Section currently has 1889 members. The annual budget for the past fiscal year was $13,408.

In October 2019, the Business Law Section co-sponsored the 46th Annual Advanced Business Law Section CLE along with Virginia CLE.  The program was held at Wintergreen Resort and board members Karl Knoll, Steve Keeler and Matt Clary participated as faculty.  In the Spring of 2020, the section hosted a 4-week series of free webinars on topics related to the COVID19 health crisis. 

I want to thank Matt Clary and John Huddle for their past service as board members, and Matt Clary and Karl Knoll for their help during my term as Chairman this past year.  Karl Knoll will be our new Chairman Officers for 2020-2021 and William A.N. Burke, and Lindsay A. Carney, will be joining the Board on July 1, 2020.

Matt, Karl and I remain committed to continuing and personally working on the Advanced Business Law Conference after we get through the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic and national unrest.  We hope to support Karl and the board in identifying board members and section members who might take up new section initiatives such as a website, newsletter, podcast and other ideas to be discussed in upcoming meetings.

Thank you for the opportunity to work with the VSB Business Law Section and its board, in particular the ABLC, over the past years.  Be healthy and hopeful in these stressful times.
