Product Safety / Product Liability

Product Safety, Product Liability

The safety of products and liability for defective products are issues of high importance and concern because of potentially huge damages, not only in the US. The consumer is continuously better informed, and regulations in this field are constantly becoming more complex. This causes more and more attention to be given to this area in Germany. Comprehensive advice to manufacturers, importers and distributors and the defence against claims, often made in class action type proceedings, require special expertise and experience.

Our services include:

  • Preventive advice to minimise risks
  • Design of products and packaging under product safety aspects
  • Drafting of warning notices
  • Supporting the development of risk management
  • Drafting guidelines for companies
  • Drafting disaster plans
  • Supporting communication in the event of crisis
  • Defence / enforcement of right in court or in arbitration proceedings
