Brian Martin Chairs State Bar's Insurance Law Section

June 6, 2008

The firm congratulates Houston partner Brian Martin who today was installed as the 10th Chairman of the Insurance Law Section of the State Bar of Texas at the State Bar of Texas' Annual Convention held at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.  The Section hosted a CLE session and reception immediately afterwards at the Hilton of the Americas.  The Insurance Section has several thousand members and is one of the largest sections in the State Bar.

The goal of the Insurance Law Section--in addressing substantive areas of Texas insurance law--"is to have a bi-partisan focus, balancing the interests of both policyholder lawyers and insurance company lawyers. The Section will seek to provide a forum for the Texas practitioner where all areas of substantive insurance law and procedural aspects of insurance litigation are addressed. Some of those areas include environmental coverage, directors' and officers' coverage, professional liability coverage, reinsurance coverage, agent/broker issues, London market issues, emerging coverage issues, regulatory issues and many others."
