Product liability

No business is immune to product failure, no matter how big or sophisticated. Some of the worst cases have hit companies that could have prevented the risk.

At Pinsent Masons, we have a product liability team with outstanding experience. We work across the UK, Ireland, France, Germany and Spain helping you avoid product problems before they happen and, if they do, we help you recover losses and reduce regulatory impacts.

Our product liability team covers the full range of product related challenges including:

  • Civil claims and defence – bringing and defending financial claims for losses due to product defects (both widespread and isolated but serious) including handling quantum via our forensic accounting team
  • Product regulatory compliance – keeping product lawfully on sale
  • Product defects – addressing issues around fact gathering, risk assessment and control, warnings, withdrawals and recalls
  • Regulatory defence – handling interfaces with trading standards and other relevant authorities including criminal defence
  • Broad product experience – we cover a wide range of products from pharma, implants, food, consumer goods and electricals, to vehicle components, chemicals, construction products and industrials (such as switchgear, turbines, UPS, compressors etc )
  • Broad capability - our team includes people with decades of experience in insurance, engineering, retail compliance, trading standards, OPSS and accounting
