New York, NY, January 15, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, has announced today that Jordan N. Walker, Attorney, Butler Snow LLP will speak at a webcast entitled: “Post-Sale Duties: Best Practices & Strategies to Prevent & Defend Product Liability Litigation Live Webcast.” This webcast is scheduled on January 22, 2018 @ 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (ET).
Because of the continuous development in the common and regulatory law, manufacturers are frequently subject to increased post-sale duties and responsibilities in the United States. However, the product liability law that covers post-sale duties varies from state jurisdiction. Once a product is sold, the control over the product is no longer in the hands of the manufacturer. Thus, during production and before distribution, a manufacturer must ensure that the product is reasonably safe for its intended purpose.
Failure to properly address these responsibilities will result to hefty fines and other punitive damages. Furthermore, to avoid such hurdles, companies and manufacturers should adequately meet its post-sale duties and responsibilities while giving significant importance to the considerations in product improvements and distributions.
Join a team of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group as they provide an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as recent developments in post-sale duties. Speakers will go beyond the basics and provide the best practices and strategies in preventing and defending against legal challenges and pitfalls in product liability litigation.
Key topics include:
- Post-Sale Legal and Regulatory Laws
- Identifying Post-Sale Duties
- Potential Penalties for Non-Compliance
- Best Practices for Managing and Defending Recalls
- Insurance Coverage Issues and Challenges
- Trends, Developments and Updates in 2018
