Joseph A. Devall, a partner in the Marine and Energy department, will present during ACI’s 7th Annual Forum on Admiralty & Maritime Claims and Litigation in Houston on February 25-27, 2019. Joey’s presentation, “Understanding the Continued Viability of the Jones Act and Addressing Its Current Obstacles to the Global Shipping Industry,” will highlight:
- What the repeal of the Jones Act would mean for the maritime industry, as it relates to national security and commerce.
- What policy proposals might be beneficial in producing a U.S. ship-building and shipping industry that is globally competitive
- Insights as to why the government affords governance support for maritime cabotage trades that favor domestic ships.
