More Than Just Blocking and Tackling:
Blockchain 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.
