The Law Office of Matthew T. Singer will be attending the Annual Longshore Conference at Loyola University. The Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana will take place on March 20-21. This conference is important to every Defense Base Act attorney because the Defense Base Act is based on the Longshore Harbor Worker’s Compensation Act and the same Federal Judges are used for both cases. This will be a meeting of attorneys for employees and employers as well as members of the Judiciary and will discuss the major issues in Defense Base Act law and practice.
The top attorneys, judges and experts in the area of Defense Base Act law will be speaking on topics such as 14(f) penalties for untimely payment of an award, Section 8(i) Settlement documents, average weekly wage and compensation rate. The Conference will last 2 days and our office will remain open during this time.
