About Membership

 PLAC has more than 80 corporate members from multi-national and national corporations (manufacturers and suppliers) and over 350 of the leading regulatory, litigation and appellate professionals. Our corporate representatives come from the legal, risk, regulatory and technical areas of their companies.  

Our Corporate Members include companies from the following industries:
Consumer Electronics
Consumer Products
Industrial Equipment 
Pharmaceutical & Medical Device

Our Sustaining Members are leaders in the regulatory, commercial litigation and appellate areas of the law and are personally invited to join our association.  They come from both large and small firms from around the world.

We provide a thoughtful point of view as it relates to products and believe it is crucial that the viewpoint of our leading companies be considered as the law gets shaped.   

Why Join PLAC?

PLAC brings together Corporations and outside Legal Professionals in an environment of trust and openness with a common goal of managing risk throughout the entire product life cycle. Our conferences, webinars, industry discussion forums and action groups are by “invitation only” where our corporate and sustaining members freely can exchange ideas and wisdom drawn from their many years of experience. We provide our members with the most salient, up-to-the-minute legal resources required to navigate the current—and future—litigation environment.

Membership Types

Corporate Membership

Unlike other legal associations that are for the benefit of the individual attorney, PLAC was created by, and for the benefit of, product manufacturers and suppliers.  We utilize our shared knowledge to understand our members product risk concerns and developing corporate challenges and help develop strategies for addressing or anticipating regulatory, risk and legal issues.  We provide our corporate members with legal intelligence, research and guidance on regulatory and litigation management best practices.  The Corporate Membership resides with the corporation, thus members of your legal, regulatory, technical and risk departments are welcome to join our events, receive mailings and participate in association activities.
Sustaining Membership (Invitation Only)

Our Sustaining Members represent the best and most experienced regulatory, trial and appellate legal professionals from the US and abroad.  PLAC offers the opportunity for sustaining members to share their collective wisdom, derived from hundreds of jury trials, appeals and regulatory actions with in-house counsel around the world.  Our Sustaining Members support our Corporate Members and each other, tapping into their considerable skills and expertise to draft amicus briefs, formulate and deliver compelling seminar content, and lead special projects. They are “on call” to the corporate counsel of PLAC—providing rapid response confidential counsel on strategies, experts and mediators when legal priorities are the most urgent.
