On April 29, 2020, Johnson & Bell Shareholder, Kevin G. Owens, will partner with Anne Mathias of Engineering Systems, Inc.

Their presentation, titled Risk Assessment and Hazard Analysis – How and Why: Improving Your Company’s Defensibility, will present both the defense attorney’s and expert engineer’s analysis and insights on how adopting a formal process of Risk Assessment and Hazard Analysis helps not only make products safer for their users, but also makes the product’s designer and manufacturer more defensible in the event of product liability litigation against them resulting from user injury.
