Adams and Reese is pleased to announce Mark Beebe has been elected to the International Association of Defense Counsel’s (IADC) board of directors for a three-year term, effective July 12, 2018.
Beebe, a partner in the firm’s litigation practice group and New Orleans office, represents clients in antitrust, securities litigation, officers’ and directors’ duties, contractual obligations and business and contractual disputes. His experience also includes multidistrict litigation and class action litigation.
Positions on IADC’s board of directors are a mark of distinction among IADC’s members. Beebe was announced as a new member of IADC’s board of directors at the organization’s 2018 Annual Meeting, which was held July 7–12 in Lisbon, Portugal.
Beebe is the latest Adams and Reese attorney to serve in a leadership role within IADC. Currently, 16 Adams and Reese attorneys serve as IADC members, including Beebe. Notably, three Adams and Reese attorneys in the New Orleans office have previously served as IADC President: founding partner W. Ford Reese (1969–1970), and former partners Henry B. Alsobrook, Jr. (1982–1985) and Edward J. Rice, Jr. (1995–1996).
