Welcome to Faegre Drinker on Products, a blog addressing all things product liability and product liability-adjacent.
Our intent is to be informative, and occasionally provocative, covering legal issues and developments of interest to product manufacturers and their lawyers. It’s a dynamic field and we cover it in a variety of ways with a variety of voices. Expect a mixture of long-form issue explorations, recent news advisories and decision blurbs, straightforward case reports, and practice tips and recommendations.
Our voices and ideas reflect our experiences. Those experiences primarily consist of representing manufacturers and other defendants in a wide variety of industries, in both the trial and appellate courts. We practice in courts nationwide and follow the law across the country, though we have a strong concentration in the law of our authors’ home states of California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Texas.
And all of our “products” come clothed in this universal disclaimer: These are the individual thoughts and opinions of the authors. They are not attributable to our colleagues or our clients. Where appropriate, we will note our involvement in cases discussed in order to advance transparency, but the positions always remain exclusively our own.
