SFIA Presents 6th Annual Litigation & Risk Management Summit (LRMS)
April 1-2, 2013 -- National Harbor, MD
The Washington DC area is the site for this year’s Litigation & Risk Management Summit (LRMS), the SFIA’s premium discussion and exposition on legal issues facing the sports equipment, fitness products and sporting goods industry. Sponsored by SFIA’s Legal Task Force, the program starts with a cocktail party Monday night April First. Tuesday April 2 is jammed full of presentations from 8 am to 5:00 pm.
Topics include an all-star panel on Women’s Sports Injuries, a look at difficult legal battles in the Courts, with the FTC and the CPSC presented by the “survivors,” and a panel of SFIA company in house counsel who will candidly discuss “what keeps them up at night.” If you want to hear what legal leaders for Rawlings, Jarden, Coleman, Burton Snowboards, Louisville Slugger, adidas and STX are thinking, you’d better be there.
The program kicks off with “Red and Blue in Sports”: a presentation by a leading Washington Democrat and Republican moderated by nationally syndicated radio host Hugh Hewitt. They will discuss the impact of the election and the New Congress on fitness and health and on our industry.
Tom Cove will lay out “The State of the Industry” for our audience. There will be a fascinating presentation on the art and science of recalls, presented by Stericycle and a panel on “New and Exciting Things from the CPSC and the State of California” to stir your digestion!
We explore the cutting edge on head injury with Catherine Ford PhD’s “Traumatic Brain Injury in Sports: Head Protection Research Update.” While Dr. Kim Templeton presents her new findings and book on Women’s Sports Injuries.
There will be a presentation entitled “Making Statistics Work for You” featuring experts on statistics and legal issues but also including leaders from New Balance and Bauer. Finally there will be opportunities to greet friends and make new ones over break and lunch.
