Companies need to be prepared for how to navigate this new system if it debuts as anticipated in the fall. The new courts, which could begin accepting cases September 1, 2024, may provide some benefits to Texas companies, including specialized judicial expertise, smaller dockets, and more expeditious resolution. While these courts may become a favored venue for high-value disputes, they will also come with their own set of challenges.

Join our Houston lawyers for an in-person CLE breakfast as they look at the details of the new system, what companies should prepare for now, and what it means for business in Texas.

This is the first in a series of CLE breakfasts offered by our Houston office.
