Meeting Preview: TIPS Section Conference at the Loews Hollywood Hotel Los Angeles, California

Christopher Brolley

The TIPS Section Conference is fast approaching as the ABA heads to Tinseltown where leaders and experts of the legal industry will be gathering at the luxurious Loews Hollywood Hotel. Over 250 TIPS leaders, members, sponsors, and guests will be attending CLE sessions, networking events, committee meetings, and more at this much-anticipated Section Conference on May 1-4, 2024. The Section Conference will focus on substantive CLE programming featuring panels of industry leaders discussing a variety of issues, including the ethics of AI, storytelling at trial, challenges for in-house counsel, litigation skills, insurance coverage, approaches to ADR, and much more! Panelists include companies and insurers, including the Los Angeles Chargers, Travelers, Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, Tokio Marine/HCC, Nationwide, Tilia Claritas, Epic Insurance Brokers & Consultants, Concilio, Capital Group, HM Clause and many more. All TIPS members—plaintiffs’ and defense bars, and corporate counsel—are encouraged to attend these sessions on emerging issues in the law and hear from experienced professionals from across the country.

Please plan on joining your TIPS colleagues at the Wednesday Night Welcome Reception and Liberty Achievement Award Presentation, the Thursday Night Reception and Dinner at world-famous Universal Studios, the Friday Networking Luncheon sponsored by the Women Trial Lawyers Committee with Keynote Speaker, and a host of blockbuster CLEs being offered throughout the week. In between the CLEs and networking events, enjoy the cultural melting pot and vibrant art scene of L.A., visit the Hollywood Bowl or Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House, or catch a baseball game as the Los Angeles Dodgers take on the Atlanta Braves.

The Leadership Academy Class will also be meeting for the third time after successful and informative Section Meetings in Nassau, The Bahamas, and Louisville, Kentucky, where the Class met and heard from several luminaries and leaders of the legal profession.

Congratulations to TIPS Chair Loren Podwell and his stellar Spring Conference Co-Chairs Dave Becker, Chuck Eppolito, Pamela Palmer, and Jeff Price for planning this electrifying Section Conference, to our wonderful Section and Corporate Sponsors and a special thanks to our great TIPS Staff led by Theresa Livingston for all of their hard work to make this another successful meeting for our TIPS members and guests.

We look forward to sharing the important work of TIPS and seeing colleagues and friends soon in the entertainment industry capital of the world, Los Angeles!
