Dive Center Business Seminar: The Dark Side of Diving Litigation 2017
Why is Dive Center Business Magazine sponsoring a seminar put on by lawyers who represent and defend major companies in the industry, but also litigate against some of DEMA's members? Because if you are a retailer, resort, vessel operator, divemaster, or instructor and want to know how to protect yourself against lawsuits, the best teacher is an experienced litigator.
Presented on Friday, November 3, 2017 at 10:00 a.m., Room S310G
Dive litigation attorney Rick Lesser, selected as a "Super Lawyer" now 11 times, together with Jorge Lopez of Jorgensen & Salberg, will be presenting their unique perspective on diving litigation and risk management that is of vital interest to store owners, resort operators, and instructors. The information provided is based on their evaluation of over 3,000 dive claims over the years, their real-world experience in actual dive lawsuits, picking juries, in making opening and closing statements, and presenting cases with millions of dollars at stake.
Recent developments in the law and in the diving industry itself, including examples from both recent dive accidents and from recent dive litigation, should not be missed by anyone who wants to take the extra step to protect themselves not only from potential liability, but perhaps even from the legal process itself. A comprehensive package of information from the seminar will be available to you and can also be sent to you after the show (one less thing to lose in Orlando).
Space is limited so plan to attend early. The information will be worth your time and attention.
