Our product liability team advises clients on risk, compliance, and business management at every stage of the manufacturing or production process.
Product liability is a risk area of which manufacturers, suppliers and distributors need to be aware as it can affect the financial performance of a company and cause significant reputational damage.
If you are defending your product, we can help you understand your insurance position and then deal with any complaints or claims that might be brought. Consumer protection legislation also means that class actions are possible, and we can assist in dealing with such claims.
We have experience of appearing in, and advising on, claims in civil and criminal courts, and our work includes advising on:
- product recalls;
- governmental investigations;
- insurance cover;
- claims for damages;
- environmental concerns; and
- environmentally-friendly supply chain management.
