MG+M is pleased to announce that Partner Matthew J. Valcourt will speak at the Third Annual Florida Maritime Law Update and Review Seminar on March 29, 2019 at St. Thomas University (“STU”). Matthew’s panel discussion will focus on admiralty jurisdiction.
The seminar is hosted by the Florida Bar Admiralty Law Committee (“ALC”), ABA-TIPS Admiralty & Maritime Law Committee (“ABA”), and the St. Thomas University Maritime Law Society. The seminar includes presentations on recent cases, trending issues relating to admiralty jurisdiction, limitation of liability proceedings, and the trial of an admiralty case. There will also be an ALC meeting open to non-committee members and a mock trial presentation by STU.
Matthew practices all aspects of maritime law including commercial disputes, insurance defense liens and vessel seizures, cargo damage, collisions, and salvage and wreck removal. From his service with the U.S. Merchant Marine and educational background, Matthew understands the shipping business and is able to skillfully resolve transportation-related disputes. He has also handled major collisions, groundings, oil spills, maritime worker injuries and deaths, P&I matters, pilot and captain licensing issues, limitation of liability, and vessel arrests.
We invite you to join Matthew at the Third Annual Florida Maritime Law Update and Review Seminar. It is an open event, but limited seating remains.
