About Larson • King, LLP
Larson • King specializes in litigation. The firm provides senior level trial experience in complex insurance law, class action and mass torts, employment and all areas of commercial litigation. Their attorneys have tried hundreds of cases to verdict, representing clients on a national scale. They are not a firm with many practice areas of which litigation just happens to be one.
In 2016, there were a number of high-profile products recalled from wide-range of consumer markets (from automobiles to mobile phones). For many companies, a simple safety recall can bring a regulatory nightmare, adverse publicity, and potentially class action lawsuits. To successfully navigate the risks of a product recall, it is important that companies understand their legal rights and obligations under federal and state regulations. It is also helpful for companies to work out a strategy to ensure that a product recall is both effective and efficient.
The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders to provide the audience with a full overview of the anatomy of a product recall (starting with the decision itself and ending with lessons learned from litigation involving recalled products). The speakers will also offer guidance and crisis/risk management considerations in executing a product recall to avoid common pitfalls.
Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
- Overview of a Product Recall
- Reporting and Investigations – Regulatory noncompliance vs. safety defect
- Recall Planning and Best Practices
- Recall Trends
- Post-Recall Litigation Planning/Risk Mitigation
- Best Practices for Mitigating Litigation Risk During a Recall
- Joint Litigation/Recall Crisis Management Reflections
- Recent Recalls and Impact of Recalls on Litigation
- Recent recalls and related lawsuits
- Recall issues in product litigation
