OMSA to Host Legal Forum

Monday, October 08, 2007
The Offshore Marine Service Association will hold the 2nd annual OMSA Legal Forum on Thursday, November 15 at the Hilton New Orleans - St. Charles Avenue Hotel. This event is a practical common-sense look at the legal issues facing the offshore workboat sector. Some of the topics will include a look at shipyard contracts from both the vessel owner and the shipyard’s perspective, the impact of the proposed Coast Guard medical fitness for duty standards and case studies of offshore collisions involving both vessels and rigs. The forum will also feature speakers from the U.S. Coast Guard who will talk about new policies that affect the offshore industry and private investigators who will talk about using surveillance techniques to bolster a legal case. The cost of the event is $150 for OMSA members and $175 for non-members. The association anticipates that it will be able to offer continuing education credits for the legal, insurance and private investigator professions. For information or to register, the contact is Lillie Licciardi (504) 734-7622.
