Where Intellectual Property and Product Liability Collide

Michael Best’s ‘Crash Course’ in Liability and Risk Mitigation Principles

Michael Best’s intellectual property experience positions us as technical experts for product liability lawsuits, which puts our firm at a knowledge advantage when one of your products becomes the subject of a lawsuit.

Join Attorneys Paul Benson and Joe Olson for a 2-hour CLE Discussion addressing:

  • Principles of product liability law and its interface with intellectual property issues;
  • Best practices a client should consider adopting to increase your odds of success if you're sued in the products context;
  • Hot topics in this area (court rulings, right to repair, antitrust, warranty issues, post-sale duty to warn, etc.);
  • And an overview of how your insurance programs fits into a company’s product liability and intellectual property strategy.

This topic is particularly timely for our clients with Wisconsin operations because the Supreme Court of Wisconsin recently interpreted the state’s 2011 Product Liability Statute, which had not previously been ruled on since its adoption.

If there is interest from those who are from out of town to attend virtually, please indicate so in the registration form.

We will apply for CLE credit in WI, CO, IL, NC, TX, UT, and VA (if applicable). If you are seeking CLE credit, please provide the applicable state(s) and bar number(s) in the registration form.
