National civil litigation law firm Segal McCambridge Singer & Mahoney is pleased to announce that Jonathan Lively has been named Chairman of the American Bar Association’s Toxic Torts & Environmental Law (TTEL) Committee for 2019.
Mr. Lively has been actively involved in the American Bar Association for many years serving as the vice-chair for the Toxic Torts and Environmental Law General Committee. In 2017, he served as program chair for the ABA's Toxic Torts and Environmental Law Committee's 26th Annual Spring Conference.
“I am honored to have been selected by my peers to serve in another leadership role for this coming year,” said Lively.
“The Committee and I are very excited for our upcoming Annual Spring Conference happening at Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego, California. We will also continue to educate our members through our quarterly newsletters which are designed to keep our membership informed of meaningful developments in our practice area," he said.
Founded in 1986, Segal McCambridge has grown from a four-lawyer shop in Chicago to a national law firm. The firm now has a total of eight offices, with the addition of a Houston office in 2018.
In addition to supporting the TTEL Committee and Conference, Segal McCambridge will be co-sponsoring the Women’s Networking Cocktail Reception at the Annual Spring Conference on the evening of Friday, April 5th.
The mission of the Toxic Torts & Environmental Law Committee's Annual Spring Conference is to gather a diverse group of leading trial lawyers and experts in toxic torts and environmental law, as well as in-house and corporate counsel, to address technical and legal issues impacting the future of asbestos litigation. Topics of focus for this year’s meeting include climate change, water and soil contamination, personal jurisdiction, science-based causation, bias faced by female attorneys and ethics. Additional networking opportunities allow attendees to foster relationships and confidence of in-house and corporate counsel.
