Brooks Pierce Partner Speaks at 2015 Real Property Hot Topics Program
Brooks Pierce partner Ben Davis was selected to present at the North Carolina Bar Association’s 2015 Real Property Hot Topics Program on Friday, February 20.
Titled “The Art of the e-Deal: Harnessing Technology in the Modern Real Estate Law Practice,” the program provided an in-depth look at the existing challenges that increased technology presents to a modern real estate practice. Speakers provided an up-to-date review of the coming changes for North Carolina real estate practitioners as a result of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s regulations.
Davis led a discussion about the increased use of digital signatures and the potential legal issues associated with this technology, and examined statutes and case law in this evolving area.
A regulatory and transactional lawyer in Brooks Pierce’s Raleigh office, Davis advises banks and other financial institutions on a variety of issues related to financial institution services and operations. His practice also includes helping financial institutions address regulatory compliance issues, including data security, payment systems and consumer protection.
