Reuters hires Teichert to cover product liability
Tony Lin, editor in charge of professional news at Reuters, sent out the following announcement:
We’re pleased to announce the arrival of a new reporter on the legal team.
Erica Teichert will be covering product liability law for our Westlaw news service, Practitioner Insights, as well as for the broader Reuters file. She will write about major litigation between companies and the customers who complain that what they sell is unhealthy or unsafe. Some of these battles and legal issues arise from new technologies like self-driving cars and the latest wonder drugs, while others stem from legacy products like tobacco and asbestos. Erica will source with the plaintiffs’ bar, get to know corporate defense counsel and be our eyes and ears on how the dynamics of mass tort and major products lawsuits will change with the incoming Trump administration. Please keep her in mind for your outpoints and onpasses.
Erica is joining us from Modern Healthcare, where she was New York bureau chief. Before that, she spent several years with Law360, where she was Washington, D.C., bureau chief, covering courts and regulatory bodies. She is a graduate of Brigham Young University with a degree in communications. Erica will report to me.
Please join me in welcoming her…
