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.
