German-American Business Dialogue

Product liability is an important area of law in the United States and it is crucial to understand it for anyone doing business in the U.S. There are certain differences between European and U.S. product liability law, which can be intimidating for foreign companies.

This event is geared toward executives and non-lawyers who seek a basic understanding of product liability theories encountered in United States Courts. The presentation will also touch on the European Privacy Laws, highlighting some of the challenges faced by European-based manufacturers who have been sued in the United States.

The event is an excellent opportunity to network with other members of the German and international business communities of the greater Houston area. A light lunch will be served.
