Dear Clients and Friends:

We are pleased to invite you to our firm's Product Liability and Consumer Fraud Claims in the U.S. Seminar: Managing Complex Litigations and Mitigating Risks to be held on Wednesday, November 5, 2003, at the Imperial Hotel in Osaka and on Thursday, November 6, 2003, at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo. 

Many Japanese companies face the risk of multi-million dollar U.S. lawsuits based on products liability and/or consumer fraud claims. These types of lawsuits are often highly complex, and difficult to manage. This seminar will help you understand the risks associated with products liability and consumer fraud litigation, how to manage these cases if you are sued, and steps you can take to mitigate your risks in distribution arrangements.

Please find the program for the seminar and a reservation form. Attendance at the seminar is free of charge, and simultaneous translation from English to Japanese will be provided. The seminar will begin at 1:20 p.m., followed by a reception beginning at 5:15 p.m. To make a reservation, please complete the RSVP form and return it to us by fax (03-3214-6512) by October 27. You can also register for the seminar by sending us an e-ail at tkseminar@mofo.com.

We look forwarding to seeing you on November 5 & 6.   Morrison & Foerster LLP
