An authoritative, in-depth study of issues in products liability litigation, this comprehensive treatise traces the law of products liability from its roots in contract and tort to its development into the challenging, complex modern law of the subject. Practically organized and clearly written, the treatise provides detailed descriptions of case law governing: * what constitutes a product * a general definition of products, followed by an in-depth examination of various types of product defects * firms in the chain of distribution that can be liable for a product defect * who in the consumer chain can make a claim for damages * defenses involving consumer conduct * general principles of proof and causation applicable to this area of law * punitive damages * the procedural and remedial concepts that surround the substantive law. Trial lawyers in products liability cases, corporate counsel for firms that manufacture or sell products, and casualty insurance firms will find this treatise a crucial resource in formulating litigation strategies. Its clear and fact-based approach makes it a valuable addition to court libraries, law school libraries, and courses in torts and products liability.

Anyone with financial responsibility for a company needs to understand his or her liability, how to protect against wrongdoing, and how to proceed when implicated. Companies are required to file accurate information reports and obey regulations designed to protect the public. In recent years, failure to comply with securities regulations has destroyed several prominent companies and implicated their executives. Securities Law Claims provides a complete and current examination of legal matters in the securities market from the perspective of an issuing company. This clearly written, issue-spotting guide combines a foundation for understanding securities law concepts with enough detail to begin an action plan at any stage from securities issue to prosecution. It is a must-read for any executive, board member, or trustee.
