Kimberly Reeves and Michael Manfredi Presented Is There an App for Liability? The Practice of Law in a Shared Economy – Atlanta – December 9

December 09, 2016 / Location: Marjorie and Ralph Knowles Conference Center, 85 Park Place NE, Atlanta, GA 30303

Kimberly Reeves and Michael Manfredi presented Is There an App for Liability? The Practice of Law in a Shared Economy on December 9 at the Marjorie and Ralph Knowles Conference Center, 85 Park Place NE, Atlanta, GA 30303.

There seems to be an ever-increasing number of companies entering the shared economy—from Uber to Airbnb to Roadie, these companies are rapidly restructuring how we operate as consumers. Much of the shared economy business model remains an under-regulated Wild West that presents liability landmines in a number of ways.

This presentation included a discussion of recent cases and emerging issues that examine the tension inherent in regulating the sharing economy including insurance, taxes, and consumer rights. Beyond that, there are ethical issues that lawyers encounter both in advising these clients and participating in the shared economy.

• Moderator: Associate Dean Jessica Gabel Cino, Georgia State Law
• Speakers: Kimberly Reeves (J.D. ’13), Associate at Carlock Copeland; Michael Manfredi (J.D. ’10),
