Whether you are developing a connected appliance, fitness device, children's toy, or other consumer products, identifying regulatory risks and to developing compliance frameworks designed to keep your customers safe and secure and your company's reputation and investments intact are crucial.

“Connected products require a new way of thinking about regulatory compliance and risk, so close coordination with subject matter experts in diverse legal areas is a must,” said Sheila A. Millar, a partner with the Firm. “Our goal is to share some practical tips on implementing effective compliance frameworks, so many of our sessions will feature interactive discussions with numerous Connected Product Team members, leveraging their expertise in the same way we do on a day-to-day basis when working with clients.”

With offices in Washington, D.C.; Brussels; San Francisco; Paris; and Shanghai, the firm helps the world's most vital businesses achieve their objectives.
