June 1, 2015

Maslon is pleased to announce that David Schultz, a trial lawyer and partner in Maslon's Litigation Group, has been admitted as a Sustaining Member of the Product Liability Advisory Council (PLAC). PLAC is a non-profit organization formed in 1983 to analyze, understand, and shape the common law of product liability and complex litigation.

Membership in PLAC is comprised of more than 100 of the world's leading product manufacturers and 350 of the most elite product liability defense counsels operating in the US and abroad. While the organization was created by and for in-house corporate attorneys, membership also includes an elite cadre of "by invitation only" defense trial and appellate attorneys with deep experience in complex litigation matters.
