Adams Joins Panel on Product Liability in Automotive Sector

Shook Partner Rob Adams has participated in a panel for Corporate Disputes discussing automotive product liability litigation. The panel discussed several questions about issues facing the automotive sector, including:

  • What advice would you offer to automotive companies on dealing with product liability-related class actions?
  • What additional challenges do cross-border and multinational disputes tend to bring?
  • Why is it so important for automotive companies to take a proactive approach to managing risks?
Adams' answers touch on voluntary automotive recalls, autonomous vehicle liability and more, and he urges automotive companies to take steps now to avoid future litigation as new technologies develop. "Proactive efforts are critical to mitigate and control risk exposure," he asserts. "Now, more than ever, is the time for proactive, thoughtful input to ensure consumer demands and creative concepts do not outpace technological capabilities."
