The West Virginia Chamber of Commerce will conduct its first business court symposium on Jan. 22. The event will focus on the state's new business court, which was created to streamline legal actions between business entities.

Supreme Court Justice Robin Jean Davis will be the event's keynote speaker. Business Court judges Christopher Wilkes and James H. Young Jr. have accepted invitations to attend. The remaining Business Court judges, James J. Rowe and Donald H. Cookman, plan to attend pending their trial schedules.

The symposium will be hosted by Jackson Kelly PLLC and will be held at the firm's Charleston office,
located at 500 Lee St., Suite 1600. The symposium will begin at 10 and is scheduled to conclude at 2 p.m. The cost for attending is $30 per person. Reservations can be made to Kim Nelson at knelson@wvchamber.com or by calling 304-342-1115.
