Thursday, March 1st – Friday, March 2nd At the Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown, DRI’s Toxic Torts and Environmental Law Committee in conjunction with the American Chemistry Council will host the Toxic Torts and Environmental Law Seminar. This seminar offers opportunity to learn the newest techniques in forensic science for defending and prosecuting environmental cases; discuss where we stand after a generation of federal environmental law; and meet and reconnect with colleagues and experts during a variety of networking events.
Roux will be sponsoring a special Speed Networking event the Wednesday evening before the Seminar. Additionally, Adam Love, Ph.D. will present on “What, Me Worry? Environmental Reopeners” as part of Thursday afternoon’s Regulatory Tract. Dr. Love will be joined by Christopher Alviggi of Alliant Insurance Services, Inc. and C. Nicole Sullivan of BASF Corporation. The panel will take the mystery out of reopeners by sharing the legal basis for reopeners (under CERCLA and various state laws), and provide real-world examples of legal and technical developments that have or may trigger reopeners.

Friday, March 2nd, 3 – 5 pm (ET) • Post-Confirmation Liquidation and Litigation Trusts in Business Bankruptcies: What Lies Ahead in 2018
The Knowledge Group will be hosting a webinar entitled Post-Confirmation Liquidation and Litigation Trusts in Business Bankruptcies: What Lies Ahead in 2018, offering 2 CLE credits. Post-confirmation liquidation and litigation trusts are tools used to resolve certain claims and issues in a Chapter 11 case. To maximize the benefits of these trusts, organizations are required to have a well-drafted reorganization plan and corresponding trust agreement that carefully identifies the claims and interests being retained and deposited into the trust.
The Knowledge Group’s webinar presents a panel of distinguished professionals, including Roux’s Peter Kelso, an expert on bankruptcy reorganization and product liability litigation. Speakers will offer helpful insights on the fundamentals and updates surrounding this topic, share how to avoid arising jurisdictional issues, and provide best practices and tips for businesses to consider when engaging in post-confirmation liquidation and litigation trusts.
Roux Associates has a limited number of complimentary passes to this webinar. If you are interested in a complimentary pass, please click on the button below:

The National Ground Water Association, or NGWA, makes up a community of groundwater professionals looking to advance the knowledge of their field through advocacy, education and outreach, cooperation and information exchange, and enhancement of professional practices. Through their public educational organization, the NGWA Foundation, each year the Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecture Series in Groundwater Science is held to present breakthroughs in groundwater science and technology, while fostering interest in the subject. The series, named after French engineer Henry Darcy, is presented annually all over the world.
This year’s lecture, “Alpine Hydrogeology: The Critical Role of Groundwater in Sourcing the Headwaters of the World,” will be presented by Masaki Hayashi, Ph.D. Dr. Hayashi is a professor in the Department of Geoscience at the University of Calgary, a Research Chair in Physical Hydrology, and his main research interests include the connections between groundwater, surface water, and atmospheric moisture in various environments. His lecture discusses how a new understanding of alpine hydrogeology has been emerging, and demonstrates how we can gain valuable insights into groundwater in challenging environments and develop a conceptual understanding of hydrological systems.
This month, the lecture series will take place along the east coast of the United States in places like Buffalo, New York and Gainesville, Florida, moving onto South America and Canada in March. To find a lecture near you and learn more about the series, please click here.
