Barna Guzy and Steffen attorney Carole Clark Isakson recently represented the firm’s transportation department and attended the regional conference of the Transportation Lawyers Association (“TLA”) in Chicago. The TLA is an independent bar association, comprised of in-house, government and private practice attorneys. Its members assist providers and commercial users of domestic and international logistics and transportation services, in all modes. Because TLA members are all attorneys, one of its primary purposes is to keep its members ahead of the constant changes in the specialized legal environment governing all aspects of the supply chain and passenger travel. TLA members come from all over the country to attend these educational conferences.
This year’s TLA conference included discussion of cross border shipments, continuing implementation of electronic logging devices in trucks, the ever shifting dynamics of risk allocation among the various parties to shipping contracts, and employment issues particular to the transportation industry.
BGS lawyers consistently seek out educational opportunities to stay abreast of changes in the law (or industry) that may impact our clients.
