GJTBS Director Joe Hassinger Passes the IALDA Gavel

GJTBS Director Lambert J. Hassinger (“Joe”) has completed his two year term as president of IALDA, the International Amusement & Leisure Defense Association. “I am pleased to pass the gavel to my friend Bryan Pope. Bryan is an accomplished trial lawyer in Rockwall, Texas, and strong supporter of the amusement industry. He is the perfect selection to continue IALDA’s commitment to the industry.”

“Since a significant part of my practice includes defense of the amusement/recreation/sports and  hospitality/entertainment/leisure industries, service as president of IALDA was both a privilege and logical fit,” adds Hassinger.

IALDA is an international non-profit association of defense attorneys, operators, insurance representatives, experts and others whose mission is to promote and protect the legal interests of the amusement, recreation and leisure industries. IALDA provides a forum for members to exchange information, share experiences and develop common discovery, safety and litigation strategies. IALDA also operates as a clearinghouse for speakers and authors on industry-specific topics and educational seminars.
