Johnson & Bell Shareholder Joseph R. Marconi will speak at the 2017 Continuing Education Program taking place on December 5 at the Hyatt Regency in Jersey City, New Jersey. Mr. Marconi will participate in "Walking The Line Without Stepping Off," a panel discussion that examines conflicting, competing or joint interests that arise among insurers, reinsurers, brokers and their insureds. The presentation will explore the actual or apparent conflicts of interests that may arise or be prevented based on four different scenarios.
The program is sponsored by ALFA International, a premier network of independent law firms. The program will offer two presentations by litigators from ten law firms who will discuss the legal, ethical, practical, and strategy issues and problems that often arise before and after litigation begins. The panelists will offer their comments and perspectives on the best practices for handling and resolving claims and disputes that involve risks and matters for which insurance coverage is or may be available.
Mr. Marconi is the chair of Johnson & Bell's Business Litigation group and Professional Liability group. He handles and supervises complex civil litigation, including real estate and commercial disputes, professional liability and employment law. He prosecutes and defends cases involving trade secrets, unfair competition, trademark and patent infringement. In addition, he has extensive experience with a wide range of real estate litigation, both in court and in arbitration, including disputes over purchase agreements, partnership agreements, management agreements, construction and lease disputes.
