Chiu served on a discussion panel titled “Behind the Curtain: How We Resolved the Most Difficult Issues of Our Careers.” The panel featured several experienced attorneys who shared about challenging and unusual transactions and the strategies they used to resolve them.

Dix’s presentation focused on ethical and due diligence considerations related to attorney and law firm use of cloud storage and cloud-based software. A technology-focused lawyer and CPA, he often provides cybersecurity and data privacy advice to clients regarding data breaches, cyberstalking, cyber harassment, social media and information governance.

Henderson’s session provided a health law overview for transactional lawyers who deal with issues involving healthcare providers. She emphasized common contract issues, employment agreements, mergers and acquisitions, and real estate transactions with regard to statutory, licensure, reporting and liability implications.

The event’s namesake, Marshall M. Criser, and Mark Hulsey, Jr. both served as president of The Florida Bar in 1968 and 1969, respectively. Smith Hulsey & Busey honors and remembers Criser’s wife and friend of the firm, Paula Porcher Criser, who passed away last week.
