The Society of Settlement Planners will be convening their annual meeting this week in Washington, DC on March 8th, 9th and 10th. The program was highlighted on a recent edition of Settlement Roundtable, with an interview of Paul Lesti, the current President of SSP, in which we discussed the agenda, plans for the year ahead and other topics regarding the society.
Some of the featured guests and speakers for the event include Attorney Jan Schlichtmann of Civil Action fame, Senator Max Baucus who will be addressing the opening dinner on Wednesday, Dan Cohen of ATLA, Jody Brewster of Skadden Arps to discuss the 468B decision before Treasury, as well as a broad panel of experts from various firms in our industry.
