In this segment, our speakers will explore what it’s like to practice in product liability defense. Product liability usually concerns claims of allegedly defective products such as automobiles, furniture, medical devices and drugs, that are claimed to have caused personal injury or death. Holly and Grant defend designers, manufacturers, distributors and sellers of commercial and consumer products. Our speakers will share with you their career paths, provide invaluable insight into what skills you’ll need to break into them, what drew them to their respective niches, the pros and cons, and what a typical day in their practice entails.
