Udall Shumway’s Equity Partner H. Micheal Wright will be speaking at the 21-Hour Philo Invitational Seminar on Thursday, September 12, 2020.  The Philo Foundation is named after Harry Philo, a Detroit lawyer who pioneered tort law theory and practice; sort of like Mel Belli.  Harry was twice President of the American Association of Justice, formerly known as the American Trial Lawyers Association.  He was a teacher of product liability law concepts and developed an extensive safety engineering library that lawyers and engineers partook of.  He and his partner Linda Atkinson and their firm have held annual seminars in Detroit.  After his death, the library continued and annual seminars have been held continuing the Philo teachings.
