TR News, Transportation Research Board (TRB)

Maritime attorney Sean Pribyl was profiled in the January-March 2024 edition of the Transportation Research Board's (TRB) TR News magazine. The Profiles section of each issue highlights the professional achievements of TRB members like Mr. Pribyl, who has served on the organization's Marine Board since 2018 and chairs its Autonomous Vessels and e-Navigation Subcommittee. In the article, he emphasized the importance of staying informed amid ever-evolving laws, regulations and technology, particularly in a field that combines commercial law, maritime affairs and international trade, among other areas.

"Modern-day legal counsel must adapt for clients facing the intersection of traditional risks and legal challenges coupled with new or disruptive technologies, digitization, automation, decarbonization efforts and more," he explained.

For practitioners in the transportation industry, he continued, this means a focus on research and learning.

"The various transportation modes — including shipping — are becoming increasingly interlinked and more complex," he said. "Consequently, transportation research is invaluable for practitioners to keep pace with emerging trends and the impact of evolving regulations on commercial operations."
