    Product Recall

    Notable for a consistently full caseload of significant litigation

    The team is well positioned to advise clients on trials and arbitrations both in the USA and abroad.

    Combining technical excellence and swift response with sensitivity to clients’ commercial needs, our product recall team acts quickly and decisively on complex cross-border claims.

    Product recall, once a tightly defined area of the US domestic market, is increasingly international in its scope. Our global reach and broad experience across insurance, manufacturing and retail clients enables us to assemble a team with the right expertise, whatever the nature or complexity of a problem.

    We advise clients regarding the standard exclusions and extensions to defective products and product recall policies, including pollution, loss of goodwill and other financial loss; handling liability defence and advising on subrogated recovery against manufacturers of defective products.

    Our experience includes successfully acting for insurers and the insured retailer in the “toxic sofa” litigation, where claimants allegedly contracted a severe skin condition from China-manufactured furniture contaminated with a sensitising chemical; and defending an Italian industrial vehicle and bus manufacturing company against litigation arising from fires involving its cargo trucks, allegedly caused by a defective, and subsequently recalled, vehicle component.

    In addition, we advise on risk prevention and management, compliance with applicable product safety regulations and product recalls. We are experienced in working closely with clients in managing product recalls and dealing with reputation/crisis management issues that may result.
