Product Safety and Liability

Product Safety and Liability

We deliver: the best concepts for emergencies.

In globalized markets that are characterized by consumer protection, industrial and commercial companies are more exposed than ever to the risks of product recalls and damage claims. We assist clients in already establishing preventive systems for quality assurance during the product development stage, with a view to avoiding coming under the scrutiny of the public or the courts from the very outset.

We have been advising and representing companies for many years on how to develop strategies to avoid and minimize risks as well as handle actual crisis situations. Our clients include automotive component suppliers, pharmaceutical, chemical and tobacco companies as well as manufacturers of household and medical equipment.

Our range of advice in the fields of product safety and liability include:

  • Fulfilment of obligations to instruct and warn
  • Communication and support in crisis situations
  • Preparation and implementation of recall actions
  • Reporting product hazards to authorities
  • Training
  • Enforcement or defense of claims to damages and recourse
  • Enforcement of coverage claims against liability insurers
