IFEA live Webinar - A Lawyer and an Event Producer Walk Into A Bar . . .

Date: Nov 12, 2020
Time: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

While the punch line will make more people roll their eyes rather than laugh, there are plenty of things for these two to discuss over a drink! Things like contracts, trademarks, insurance clauses and certificates, by-laws, risk management, and indemnification! As the General Counsel for the Kentucky Derby Festival, I work daily on the legal issues that face the festival and event industry. Through 13 years of putting out fires, I’ve learned how to both protect our organization if we face litigation and how to keep it from getting to that point. I look forward to sharing some war stories and key legal principles that will keep your festival from seeing the inside of a courtroom!
