Surveying the Panorama of Broker Liability Issues (Cargo and Casualty)  and the State of the Law in 2019 -- and What to do about it!

Synopsis:  On June 4, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. EST (12:00 p.m. CST and 10:00 a.m. PST), two preeminent broker/3PL liability attorneys will look back a bit at where we have been, but mostly focus upon the present, and discuss how broker liability for cargo loss and damage, and negligent selection/vicarious liability high dollar casualty exposure, have evolved in the last decade.  The retrospective will be brief and the panel will primarily focus upon the state of broker liability law today.

The panelists will provide updates on current trends in litigating cargo claims on behalf of brokers (as plaintiff and/or defendant), and review recent case law regarding these issues.  The panelists will also examine and discuss recent case law relating to broker liability (or lack thereof) for catastrophic casualty losses, including an examination of issues relating to the evolving applicable regulatory regimes, federal preemption and its impact upon broker liability, and the nuances of carrier selection and qualification processes.  Finally, the panelists will provide their top 10 practical tips for brokers on preventing cargo and casualty claims from even happening at all. Ms. Goorevitz and Mr. Zalud first presented on this topic, on the same panel, two weeks after the Schramm decision.  They have continuously been involved in advising their broker clients, and others, on these issues, since then.  They are true Schrammologists!
