Former Chief Justice of the Florida Supreme Court Arthur England to Speak on the Appellate Aspects of Bad Faith Litigation

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - July 16, 2007) - Arthur J. England, Jr., former Chief Justice of the Florida Supreme Court, will address the appellate considerations of bad faith litigation as a panelist at Mealey's Bad Faith Litigation Conference in Philadelphia on September 24-25, 2007. Mr. England is a co-chair of the National Appellate Practice Group of the Greenberg Traurig law firm.

The Conference will offer programs which address the complete anatomy of bad faith lawsuits, and has been designed to sharpen trial skills and provide analysis of precedential and cite-worthy bad faith cases. Mr. England's appellate panel will discuss such matters as planning for an appeal before trial, the role of appellate counsel at trial, the need for separate appellate counsel, and the issues of bad faith litigation which attract appellate attention.

Greenberg Traurig's Appellate Practice Group has been at the center of some of the most important appellate cases in recent times, including serving as appellate counsel to Lorillard Tobacco in the landmark appeal which reversed a $145 billion award, and writing the amicus brief cited extensively in the Supreme Court's decision in the University of Michigan affirmative action cases.

Mr. England is the author of Florida's Administrative Procedure Act and Corporate Income Tax Code. He focuses his practice on appellate work and trial counseling, constitutional matters, commercial litigation, administrative law, and insurance defense. He received a B.S. from the Wharton School of Finance and Commerce of the University of Pennsylvania, an LL.B. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School, and a LL.M. from the University of Miami School of Law.
