Lane Powell Shareholder Katie Matison has been elected Treasurer of the Association of Transportation Law Professionals (“ATLP”), an organization consisting of practitioners throughout the U.S. and Canada that handle marine, aviation, motor carrier and railroad cases.  Matison had been a board member of the organization for four years before her recent election.

At the ATLP’s recent annual meeting, Matison also received the ATLP Presidential Award for “exceptional efforts to further the success of the organization.”  She also presented a paper at the meeting on the topic “Shipowners’ Statutory Right to Seek Exoneration from or Limitation of Liability from Marine Casualties.”

Matison was joined at the meeting by Lane Powell attorneys Jennifer Smith and Joe Corr.  Smith spoke about maritime updates as a member of the Modal Update Panel, and both Smith and Corr served on the meeting’s program curriculum committee.
