The first seminar in DLA Piper's Sector Insurance series will focus on the two European directives reforming the regulation of product liability. The directives affect consumer goods and the – highly topical – field of AI. During the seminar, we’ll provide an overview of the current situation in Italy, focusing on producer liability profiles, with mention of the health care field, procedural aspects, and protection tools such as class action and third party funding.
