Richard Arsenault Chairs 30th Annual Admiralty Symposium

Attorney Richard Arsenault, program chair since its inception, chaired the LSBA’s 30th Annual Admiralty Symposium on Friday, September 15, 2023 in New Orleans.

The firm also covered the registration fee for select students and their professors from Paul M. Hebert Law Center at Louisiana State University, Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, and Tulane University School of Law. Pictured above are Richard with three LSU students (left to right) Lane, Kaleb, and Corey. Corey is the son of NBA attorney Mike Koch, who also attended the conference and spoke on a panel.

Mike Koch and Chase Gore spoke on “Interacting with the Bench When Litigating Maritime Claims, Including the Initial Rule 9(h) Election,” Wes Gralapp and Matt Crotty on Maritime Mediation Strategies,” and Dustin Carter on “Ethical Obligations Associated with Artificial Intelligence.”
