Online CLE Product Liability

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CLE Product Liability Webinar. The evolving and expanding scope of post-sale duties in recent years left manufacturers vulnerable to a myriad of legal risk issues. Failure to realize these responsibilities could incur monetary penalties and punitive damages, more so the potential for a product liability lawsuit. Hence, it is essential that manufacturers have a keen understanding of their post-sale duties. Developing strategic action plans for their post-sale actions as well as for defending the recall or retrofit of their products are also imperative to avoid further pitfalls.

Listen as a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group provide an in-depth discussion of the fundamentals and recent developments in post-sale duties.
