 Legal Forum 



The Grand Del Mar, San Diego, CA


The AGA Legal Forum is an intensive two-day seminar that gives participants the opportunity for in-depth discussion of gas industry issues with other member company general counsel and senior attorneys.  The Thirty-Fifth Annual Legal Forum will focus on the impact of the changes taking place in the industry and the new legal challenges facing you and your clients.  

The Forum will feature presentations and panel discussions on topics of vital interest to natural gas industry attorneys.  As you know, the Forum also provides a unique opportunity for informal discussions with other gas industry general counsel and attorneys.

The following topics are scheduled for discussion at this year’s Legal Forum:

  • Federal and State Pipeline Safety Update
  • FERC Enforcement Trends
  • Cost Recovery:  Traditional vs. Alternative Methods
  • California PUC Executive Director Paul Clannon on San Bruno Lessons Learned
  • CFTC Issues Arising From Dodd-Frank
  • Other Recent Federal Regulatory Issues Impacting LDCs 
  • LDC General Liability Issues
  • Labor Law Issues for LDCs
  • E-Discovery and Social Media
  • Other Topics of Interest to LDC General Counsel and Other Industry Attorneys

The Forum will be held this year from Sunday evening, July 15, through Tuesday, July 17, at The Grand Del Mar in San Diego, California.  The Grand Del Mar, California's only triple Five-Star resort, is located near the coast in Northern San Diego, just east of I-5, and surrounded by the pristine coastal communities of La Jolla, Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe. The resort is just a short drive from top attractions, including its renowned beaches and much more. As an added convenience, it’s also less than 30 minutes from the San Diego International Airport.
