               Irvine Marriott
                      A Seminar Like No Other

Every year there are tens of thousands of product liability lawsuits filed against manufacturing
corporations, big and small, throughout the United States. And the jury verdicts in product
liability cases continues to grow, increasing 77% in 2010 over 2009, and up 52% in 2009 over
2008, along with class action lawsuits. The amount of money involved in these lawsuits can
bankrupt a company, or have a long term crippling affect on a manufacturing corporation, as
well as in their insurance premiums. This is why all of the top insurance companies not only
support and promote these seminars, but send their own Product Liability & Risk Management
Consultants to these same seminars for their own training.
You will learn how to recognize day-to-day activities that could someday lead to a product
liability lawsuit, all the procedures and efforts that need to be in place in order to reduce the
chances of a product recall or a product liability lawsuit, and how to substantially increase your
chances of winning a product liability lawsuit in the event you were wrongly accused. And you
will learn new product introduction techniques that will lead to significant improvements in
operating efficiencies and profitability, even if you never see a product recall or liability lawsuit.

     This seminar will definitely change the way your company does business!
