On October 27, the Morrison Mahoney Professional Practices group presented the themed mock trial “As You Wish (the Coverage Was)" at The BIG Event and annual meeting of the Massachusetts Association of Insurance Agents. Using characters from The Princess Bride, but taking facts from actual cases, they presented an example of the types of situations that lead to claims against insurance brokers.

As part of Appreciation Saturday, a day during the conference dedicated to agency staff, attorneys from Morrison Mahoney served as judge, attorneys, and witnesses, while audience members decided who won. This was Morrison Mahoney’s 4th decade participating and 17th consecutive year as mock trial hosts in support of MAIA’s annual BIG Event and enjoyed its best turnout yet.
