Excerpt from Letter from Chair -

I am pleased to present you with the 2012 Product Liability Annual Review, marking another successful year for Morrison & Foerster’s Product Liability Group. In 2012, my colleagues and I continued to build on our position as a world-class product liability group.

We continue to handle high-stakes, high-profile matters for clients in the pharmaceutical, aviation, and consumer-products industries. In 2012, we litigated more than 400 active product liability matters, and were retained in more than 100 new engagements. We continued our successful trial track record with jury trial victories, and successfully resolved numerous other cases through motion practice and favorable settlements. We also advised our clients on a wide range of risk mitigation issues, including product labeling, risk assessment, and responses to safety incidents.

Please see full issue below for more information.
