Course Description

Estimated Duration 60 Minutes
Difficulty Intermediate

Many lawyers and clients think that getting a product to market ends with the development of a great idea, protecting the intellectual property and delivering a prototype. That part, although not easy, is in fact just the beginning of a process, and with some exceptions, is generally never done alone. With very few exceptions, there is an entire network of manufacturers and distributors, and perhaps franchisees and resellers and licenses, involved in getting any kind of product financed and into the hands of consumers or end users. With each layer of supply chain assistance, the issues and risks escalate. This CLE, presented by attorney Aaron Polak, will explore the legal issues confronting the rollout of most any product, from bread to microchips or medical devices to automobiles.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Examine the risks and benefits of relying on third parties to help develop and manufacture your product
  2. Review the differences and commonalities among manufacturing, supply, distribution and reseller agreements
  3. Grasp the risk of a one-size-fits-all approach and understand why a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work
