    Within just a few weeks after the COVID-19 pandemic shuttered live events in the United States, robust treatises such as the Event Safety Alliance Reopening Guide started to be released about how to mitigate the new risks in a reasonably healthy and safe way. A consensus quickly emerged around the importance of three things: social distancing, face covering, and hand washing. Nonetheless, reopening live events remains a mess. This session will explore clients' actual exposure to COVID-19 negligence claims, how they can mitigate the risk of litigation, and help you advise them to avoid the more obvious self-inflicted wounds as they reopen during this "new abnormal."

    Steven A. Adelman is head of Adelman Law Group, PLLC in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Vice President of the Event Safety Alliance. His law practice focuses on risk and safety at live events throughout North America, and he serves as an expert witness in crowd-related lawsuits.

    Adelman is widely recognized as an authority regarding event safety and security. He is principal author of the authoritative Crowd Management standard in the United States, ANSI ES1.9-2020. He was lead author of the Event Safety Alliance Reopening Guide, which has been translated into nearly a dozen foreign languages. He is a law school professor teaching "Risk Management in Venues," author of the "Adelman on Venues" blog and "Ask Steve" video series explaining legal issues at live events, and he frequently appears in national and local media analyzing safety and security incidents at public accommodations.
