Attorney Richard J. Arsenault, senior partner at Neblett, Beard & Arsenault, chaired the Louisiana State Bar Association’s 17th Admiralty Symposium today in New Orleans. Arsenault has organized the event since its inception.
This year’s schedule featured federal judges, professors, attorneys and engineers from across the country speaking on laws governing maritime activities, including Neblett, Beard & Arsenault’s Attorney Wes Gralapp, who addressed governmental claims.
Arsenault was chosen by the Louisiana State Bar Association to lead the event because of his extensive knowledge and experience in maritime law and complex litigation. He is also heavily involved with the on-going litigation stemming from the tragic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. This year, Arsenault has chaired the Louisiana State Bar Association’s Gulf Coast Oil Spill Symposium, the Harris Martin Publishing Gulf Coast Oil Spill Symposium and was named Co-chair of the American Association for Justice’s Gulf Coast Oil Spill Litigation Group.
The Wall Street Journal has called Arsenault’s seminars the “must attend” legal events, and his expertise has been featured by The New York Times, CBS, Business Week, NPR and other major media outlets.
