PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As many as 50 companies and 150 attendees will come together April 20, 2015, at the Northeast Corporate Counsel Forum, a legal education program on key issues facing legal departments and their law firm advisors, HB Litigation Conferences Managing Director Tom Hagy announced today. Hagy said the faculty will feature in-house speakers from PSEG, Prudential, Guidepost Solutions, Ernst Young, Aon, eBay and others. The event is a co-production of HB and Veritext Legal Solutions.

Our faculty will provide corporate counsel with insights to help them navigate these risks," Hagy said.

Epstein, a member of Sills Cummis & Gross P.C., along with Marc Goldberg of Veritext, have designed a strong program comprising experienced speakers who spend their days in the corporate law trenches.
