Hunton & Williams launches 3D printing team
Hunton & Williams LLP has launched a 3D printing team to advise clients as they utilize the technology, which is being adopted by manufacturers in many industries.
“We are very excited about this new team,” Maya M. Eckstein, head of the firm’s intellectual property practice group and 3D printing team leader, said in a statement. “We are formalizing work we have been doing since the emergence of this transformative manufacturing process, and we are poised to advise on the new legal issues arising in 3D printing in intellectual property, product liability, compliance, regulatory, insurance, tax and other areas.”
The 3D printing team aims to give clients an advantage as they consider the opportunities presented by using 3D printing in their operations.
The team includes Eckstein and four other Virginia-based attorneys: Walter J. Andrews, Brian L. Hager, Rita Davis and Michael S. Levine.
Hunton & Williams serves clients from 19 offices around the world, including locations in Norfolk, Richmond and McLean.
