MG+M The Law Firm (MG+M) Partner Raúl J. Chacón Jr., chair of the firm's Maritime Practice, will speak at the American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) Marine Law Symposium on Wednesday, April 6 at the Crowne Plaza in Providence, Rhode Island.
Raúl and Robert Taylor, principal engineer at Design Research Engineering, will discuss how they worked together to successfully defend a large boat manufacturer in a case that at first glance was all but certain to lead to heavy losses for the boat manufacturer. The critical analysis of evidence and legal issues by both Raul and Mr. Taylor in a high stakes “Bet the Farm” case that involved catastrophic personal injuries walks all through the delicate dance that can decide the outcome of a case. Their extensive work, that was funded by the manufacturer, demonstrates how essential it is to carefully analyze the evidence before reaching a conclusion.
The Marine Law Symposium is designed to prepare participates to navigate the legal aspects of recreational boating accidents. Panelists will analyze critical investigations and case studies impacting today’s verdicts. There will be discussions on analysis tools, expert selection strategies and essential investigation resources that can be the difference between winning and losing.
