11/16/2016
Karen P. Kimmey
Santa Clara, CA

Sandra Edwards and Karen Kimmey will present the "Product Liability Update for Life Science Companies" session at the 28th Annual All Hands Meeting at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

Hope for the best, plan for the worst. Adverse incidents, during and after development of life science products, can lead to individual and class action claims stemming from research, design, manufacture, distribution or marketing. Product liability litigation is constantly evolving, and this presentation will update in-house counsel at life science companies about recent developments and trends for avoiding future claims and defending current ones.
