Michael A. Pope, PC was quoted in an August 21 article published by Product Liability Law360 regarding the growing importance of product liability in international trade. Mr. Pope discussed McDermott's efforts to help international firms comply with regulations and defend themselves against lawsuits by utilizing their strategic partnership with the Chinese law firm, MWE China Law Offices, as well as with their international dispute resolution team. Mr. Pope stated that the cooperation between all of the teams reflects the firm's "corporate culture where people reach out across practice groups." He continued, "It's not just simply going to trial. I think more and more the advice we bring to people will be important."
