Gordon & Rees Philadelphia partner Ann Thornton Field will participate in “Beyond the Horizon: What's Next in Aviation and Space Law Litigation,” a two-day CLE conference presented by the American Bar Association Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section.
Field will moderate an Oct. 17 insurance roundtable that includes aviation insurance claims managers from different aviation sectors. From 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., Field and the panelists will discuss legal issues on the horizon; how the relationship between insurers, insureds, and outside counsel may change in the coming years; and the greatest potential growth in aviation-related legal services.
