The Woodmark Hotel / Kirkland, WA

Experience has taught us that few manufacturers have a comprehensive program to minimize their product liability exposure.  Many employees do not understand the breadth and severity of product liability laws.  Frequently, they receive no training to make them sensitive to the implications of what they write and say.  Typically, they do not fully appreciate the legal consequences of their actions.  This workshop is based on a case study that traces product problems from their beginnings and requires the workshop participants to decide, as the facts and events develop, what steps the company should take to protect itself from liability.

Who Should Attend
The workshop is recommended for in-house counsel, risk managers and accident investigators.  The workshop is also intended for senior managers and employees whose jobs require them to make decisions that can get manufacturers into product liability trouble.  For example, those who make design decisions, draft instructions and warnings and decide how to respond to product problems will benefit. 

CLE Credits (General and Ethics)
This workshop has been approved for 11.0 hours of general credits and 0.50 hour of ethics credit by the Washington State Bar Association and the State Bar of California.  If you are admitted to practice law in another state, we will provide documentation to assist you in applying for credit in your state of admission.
