This year's Business Law Forum will be a hybrid program, so we hope you will join us either virtually or in person at Bass Berry Sim's Nashville offices on April 21. 2022 and 2023 have so far provided both professional and hobbyist legal commentators with plenty of material to fill up newspapers, message boards and blog posts. Journalists and keyboard warriors alike observed and analyzed numerous high-profile legal developments with a legal flavor.

This year’s program will feature Tennessee practitioners commenting and interpreting many of these newsworthy developments, including issues related to artificial intelligence, crypto failures, non-competes, and celebrity executives. The speakers will examine ethical uses of AI-driven platforms such as ChatGPT* in the legal profession, current concepts related to transactional non-competes (including the related impact of proposed federal policies), lessons learned from cryptocurrency bankruptcies like FTX, and the legal constraints that celebrity executives and directors must navigate when balancing their public image with regulatory obligations.
