Washington – November 8, 2019: William L. Anderson, a partner in Crowell & Moring’s Mass Tort, Product, and Consumer Litigation Group, has been appointed chair of the International Association of Defense Counsel’s Product Liability Committee.

Founded in 1920, the association represents approximately 2,500 corporate and insurance defense attorneys by supporting their professional development and providing a forum for discussing the most pressing issues in law. The Product Liability Committee is the largest committee in the organization and consists of the leaders in product litigation across every industry.

“I am honored to step into the shoes of my predecessor Jessie Zeigler and assume the chair role for the Product Liability Committee this year,” said Anderson, who joined in 2015. “I look forward to developing programming that will keep members on top of the latest developments in products liability defense and creating opportunities for networking and collaboration.”

With nearly three decades of experience, Anderson’s practice focuses on product liability, toxic tort, and environmental matters that typically involve significant and complex medical and scientific issues and national coordination roles.
