Production and Product Liability Lawyers

Tailored strategies for optimum risk protection

We offer wide-ranging advice on legal matters relating to production and product liability, extending from product and manufacturer's liability through cooperation agreements (including contract manufacturing agreements) to product alerts and recalls.

We create a tailored strategy for each client covering all relevant production matters. We advise on partnering with other companies to develop and manufacture new products, while safeguarding against increasing product liability risks in international trade. In the event of major product liability claims, our clients benefit from ongoing support. We also seek to achieve the best possible legal position at the outset through intelligent claim management systems. Our clients can rely on our experts’ many years of in-court experience, whether representing an injuring party, injured party or certification company.
