Product Responsibility Summit 2017: Addressing Risk Through The Product Life Cycle
What do you need to consider at each step in the process? Leeton Lee and Patrick Donovan will address the role the event binder can play in helping you better manage risk considerations.
As an attorney for 28 years, Leeton Lee has extensive experience in regulatory compliance, product safety and testing of a wide variety of consumer products, including toys, children’s products, promotional products, premiums and apparel. He got his start in product safety more than 23 years ago, when he was hired in 1993 as an in-house attorney in the consumer products legal department at The Walt Disney Company, where he worked for seven years managing the business and legal affairs for The Disney Store worldwide, prepared and negotiated Disney’s tie-in promotional contracts for its entertainment features and programs, and helped establish Disney’s highly-respected product safety/compliance program. In his first week at Disney, he inherited 5 major product safety recalls from his predecessor, so, in addition to his other duties, Mr. Lee had to quickly form a small team to create Disney’s product safety and compliance program to protect consumer safety and Disney’s valuable reputation and brand.
