2016 Annual Florida Bar Convention: Updates in Business Law

At the 2016 Annual Florida Bar Convention, Legal Talk Network producer Laurence Colletti interviews Jay Kim, business litigator and member of The Florida Bar board of governors, about the updates in business law in Florida over the past year. Jay points out the overall stability in commercial litigation despite economic climates and how Florida law is pretty friendly toward businesses overall. He goes into the proposal for settlement statute providing for the collection of attorneys’ fees and how it is evolving. Laurence and Jay then shift to discuss the upcoming year. Jay explains how a recent Florida Supreme Court judgement on the way workers’ compensation attorneys’ fees are calculated will likely affect businesses, solo attorneys, and many workers across the state.

Jay Kim is a business litigator and partner at Kim Vaughan Lerner in Fort Lauderdale. His boutique law firm focuses on commercial litigation, employment litigation, and insurance litigation. Jay is a former chair of The Florida Bar Grievance Committee and was recently elected to The Florida Bar board of governors, representing the 17th Judicial Circuit. He presented the business law portion of the “Florida Bar Update.”
