2nd National Forum on Defending and Managing
The essential forum that will shape the future of defense and risk management strategies for the industry’s leading counsel and claims and risk management professionals
Monday, December 05 to Tuesday, December 06, 2011
Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, Orlando, FL
The nation’s premier trucking litigation forum devoted entirely to the defense of claims, led by an unparalleled faculty of the most experienced in-house counsel, claims officers, and risk managers, as well as expert outside counsel and renowned federal and state judges
The issues surrounding trucking litigation have never been as complex as they are now. Not only does litigation affect the drivers and vehicles involved, but plaintiffs’ counsel will often look to parent companies with deep pockets to extend theories of liability. Companies are often starting from a disadvantage as they are forced to battle overwhelming natural sympathy for catastrophically injured (often blameless) plaintiffs. Add to this the multitude of factors involved in determining the proximate causes of an accident, the complex insurance claims that are often intertwined with litigation of a catastrophic accident, and the evolving federal and state regulatory paradigms governing the trucking industry, and it is clear that defense counsel face an uphill battle. With all of these factors putting defense counsel behind the 8-ball from the very start, there has never been a more important time in the industry to convene and exchange valuable insights and strategies with colleagues from around the nation.
Building on the incredible success of our inaugural trucking litigation event and in response to demand from the market, American Conference Institute has developed the 2nd National Forum on Defending and Managing Trucking Litigation. Our unparalleled speaker faculty, consisting of senior industry professionals, leading outside defense counsel, and renowned federal and state jurists, will provide even the most seasoned professionals with the clarity and certainty needed to remain ahead of the curve on today’s key issues to mounting a rigorous and complete defense.
