Locke Lord is a proud sponsor of the Hispanic National Bar Association's (HNBA) 41st Annual Convention, taking place September 7-8 in Chicago, IL. Ernesto Palomo is on the planning committee for the convention, and Nina Huerta is a speaker on the Intellectual Property & Litigation Track Panel #2. The panel will discuss the crucial role of lean technology, including interactive budgets, process maps, and discovery tools that are dramatically altering the wage and hour class and collective action litigation landscape.

The Annual Convention attracts hundreds of attorneys, judges, and law students from across the country, including public officials, business leaders, and General Counsels from many Fortune 100 and other corporations. This year’s theme is “Empowering Leaders,” which resonates with Chicago’s history as an industrial and technological epicenter and bedrock of talented leadership.
