Roig Lawyers Admiralty & Maritime Attorney to Speak at the 12th Annual Mid-Atlantic Mariners Club Fall Seminar

September 30, 2015

Roig Lawyers, a minority-owned multi-practice litigation law firm dedicated to serving clients across six offices throughout Florida, is pleased to announce that Craig P. Liszt will speak at the 12th Annual Mid-Atlantic Mariners Club Fall Seminar at the Loews Annapolis Hotel on October 14, 2015.

Craig will discuss the centuries-old insurance doctrine of uberrimae fidei (“utmost good faith”) and how it continues to play an active role in marine insurance in most jurisdictions. He will provide real-life examples of how the doctrine is used today, as well as practical advice for insurers and agents on how it can be used – or avoided – in their businesses.

The seminars brings together hundreds of attendees and has touched on topics such as “The Claim from Hell,” concerning issues of fraud in insurance claims and the loss of the Pride of Baltimore, a live mock trial “The Loss of the Lucky III,” which looked at a trial based on the loss of a private yacht in a hurricane.

The Mid-Atlantic Mariners Club is an organization of professionals in the marine insurance industry. The organization is dedicated to raising the standards of the industry in terms of ethics, knowledge, and professionalism, and to providing a forum in which members of the marine insurance community can learn about important issues of the day, and to network with each other. The Club has members that are Marine Agents, Underwriters, Claims Professionals, Attorneys, Surveyors, Investigators, and experts in many other related fields.
