Willis, Mince Speak at American Bar Association’s National CLE Conference

Two Fishman Haygood attorneys, Scott Willis and Lori Mince, presented at this week’s 34th Annual Real Property, Trust, and Estate Law (RPTE) National CLE Conference. Hosted by the American Bar Association (ABA) both virtually and onsite in Dallas, Tex., the multi-day event focused on the most trending areas of real property, trust, and estate law. Faculty members included many of the leading practitioners in these areas.

On Wednesday, Willis, a partner in the firm’s Business Section, spoke as part of the “Opinions Potpourri: Hot Topics and Current Issues in Real Estate Finance Opinions” program. Speakers addressed topics like delivery mechanics, split opinions, Bandera v. Boardwalk, and more. Willis is the current co-chair of the Real Property, Trust, and Estate Law standing CLE Committee, and he also serves as a supervisory council member to the RPTE Section.

Mince, a partner in the firm’s Litigation Section, took part in the “Insurance and Risk Management in the Wake of Surfside” program the next day. Mince and the other panelists explored the current state, new trends, and developments as to how to handle and manage risks for condominium buildings in catastrophe-prone areas as well as unforeseen and rare Surfside-like events. Mince also serves as vice-chair of the ABA’s Real Property Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee.
