1/16/2017: Andrew Stephenson to Co-Chair ABA Transportation Megaconference

F&P principal Andrew Stephenson will once again be one of the program chairs for the 2017 American Bar Association Transportation Megaconference.  The conference will be held March 8-12 at the Sheraton in New Orleans.  Andrew will be participating in the program introduction, as well as moderating “the Top Ten List 2017” panel which will provide an update on the most significant legal devleopments impacting trucking companies and litigation over the last two years.

The Transportation Megaconference was the first and continues to be one of the leading continuing education programs for those involved in all aspects of trucking company-related litigation, providing attendees with practical, nuts-and-bolts approaches to transportation litigation, a national forum to learn from the experts, and an opportunity to meet, network, and exchange ideas with industry leaders and outstanding industry lawyers, executives and those involved in the decision-making process.

Sponsored by the Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section (TIPS) Commercial Transportation Litigation Committee, Transportation Megaconference XIII marks the thirteenth in a series of highly successful biennial programs and presentations on trucking and motor carrier related issues. Building on a tradition of excellence over the last 24 years, the program planners have again assembled some of the nation’s leading trucking litigation experts, from inside and outside trucking companies, to address the wide variety of subjects which influence the daily operations of trucking business and impact critical litigation decisions and activities.

From the Keynote address and popular Top Ten and Corporate Counsel Roundtable segments to the Bench-Bar exchange, Litigation Management, Courtroom Expectations, Large Verdict, and handling the High Exposure/Subjective Complaint case segments, the Megaconference always presents the best and brightest. This year, additional segments include Technology and Science in the Courtroom, On-Board Cameras, and a novel segment on Google Self-Driving Technology. This TIPS National Program, again held in New Orleans, is an industry event not to be missed.
