Industrial risks - Product liability



As legislation becomes increasingly universal and regulatory authorities collaborate with each other, a safety problem identified in a company located in a given country can impact the business of its subsidiaries located on the other side of the world. The firm’s aim is to keep you informed, effectively and quickly, about regulatory compliance and to work with your distributors/retailers to help them manage communications and minimise the damage caused to your company and its brand.

We work with companies that specialise in managing crises brought on by media attention to the problems associated with defective products.

The work of Granrut Avocats:

- Assessment of risks and regulatory compliance: the media impact of withdrawing or recalling products can be minimised. We assist you in defining a strategy to be implemented.
- Defence concerning product liability: whether or not there is an actual product recall, companies are faced with damages claims submitted by the people injured by a defective or dangerous product. An increasing number of countries are adopting procedures allowing a group of individuals to take legal action (class action) against manufacturers and suppliers, with potentially devastating effects. The firm defends its clients in various sectors against claims by individuals and companies.
- Our expertise regarding product liability enables us to help our clients throughout the life-cycle of a product. We work in a range of fields, such as: • construction materials • chemicals • consumer products • vehicles • medical devices and pharmaceutical products • cosmetics • food and beverage products.
