The rapid globalisation of trade and complex supply chains means that ever increasing attention needs to paid to managing product safety and liability issues across businesses.

Wherever you are in the supply chain you may find yourself embroiled in regulatory investigations and customer litigation as a result of a product that you have manufactured, supplied or distributed. Managing these issues requires a broad international, legal and commercial approach with a strong focus on fast responses and practical solutions.

Our cross-disciplinary, global Product Liability group provides strategic advice and commercial assistance to all businesses in the supply chain, from designers to end users. We advise on these issues across a wide range of sectors covering products such as medical devices, tobacco, industrial equipment, food contact materials, electronic equipment and other consumer and business products.
