2 The nation s premier admiralty & maritime 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 judges The issues surrounding admiralty and maritime litigation have never been as complex as they are now. In the wake of Deepwater Horizon, all eyes are focused on the potential for litigation arising from environmental accidents, and defense counsel must be prepared to defend against new and emerging theories of liability from the plaintiffs bar. Moreover, the law governing admiralty and maritime claims continues to evolve, impacting everything from the type of claims that can be filed to the remedies that are available for a given claim. 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 admiralty and maritime litigation, and the procedural and jurisdictional intricacies inherent in maritime litigation, 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. In response to demand from the market, American Conference Institute has developed the National Forum on Defending and Managing Admiralty & Maritime Litigation. Our unparalleled speaker faculty, consisting of senior industry professionals, leading outside defense counsel, and renowned federal judges, 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.
