More Than Just Blocking and Tackling:
Is Coming Around the Corner and We’d Better Be Ready for It. Here’s How!
Wednesday, October 24
2 p.m. Eastern; 1 p.m. Central; Noon Mountain; 11 a.m. Pacific
As a tsunami of technological advances reshape
our transportation and logistics world, from both a practical and a legal
standpoint, both in-house counsel and outside counsel must adroitly adapt to
meet the needs of their clients. One of
those advances that is hurdling toward us, at breakneck speed, is
blockchain. This webinar, occurring on
October 24, 2018 at 2:00 P.M. ET, will begin with the basics of blockchain,
including its origins, its functionality, and its prospects for growth and
development within the transportation and logistics industry. It will also discuss how the rapid-fire,
cloud-based transactions of blockchain apply to the rights and liabilities of
transactional partners, in particular, shipment schematics. Additionally, the panelists, Mark Newcomb,
Counsel and Vice President - Claims & Insurance, Zim Integrated Shipping
Services, and Kennedy K. Luvai, Shareholder at Parsons Behle & Latimer,
will explore how this state-of-the-art, transactional technology is
superimposed upon the arcane regimen of statutory and regulatory bodies and
case law, upon which the transportation industry is based. Finally, the panel will provide both
pragmatic and legal pointers on how to advise our clients in dealing with
blockchain transactions effectively, from contractual, transactional, and legal
perspectives. This is the cutting edge
of change in our industry -- you won’t want to be left behind! See you there.
