Minimizing risks through prevention

Product liability primarily serves to protect consumers. At the same time, the regulations create a market for high-quality and safe products by keeping suppliers of cheap but unsafe products off the market.

Manufacturers of quality products, on the other hand, can assert themselves. If defective or dangerous products cause damage, claims for damages can be asserted. Our specialised legal advice supports companies in the area of product liability in a variety of ways.

From the development to the distribution phase of your products, we are at your side to ensure your legal concerns in connection with product safety and product liability. Our expertise and experience enable us to support you in designing your products according to the state of the art. We help you to comply with all relevant regulations during planning, development and production in order to minimise liability risks. We also ensure that your products are supplied with the necessary documentation, including assembly instructions, repair instructions and instructions for use – safely and in compliance with the law.

If your products are already on the market, we can also support you in monitoring all safety criteria and assist you with the implementation of recall or field campaigns. We work closely with your insurance companies to provide you with comprehensive advice and support in the event of a claim.

In close cooperation with experts and test centres, we arrange comprehensive test procedures for your products and support you in achieving product safety and limiting liability risks.

Contract design

Our experienced team of attorneys reviews and optimises contracts with regard to all necessary details of product liability. In this way, we ensure that contracts comply with the applicable legal provisions and meet the individual needs of your company. In this way, you avoid potential disputes and financial burdens and promote a trusting cooperation with your suppliers and customers.

Expert opinion

Professionally prepared expert opinions are a good basis for companies to better assess liability risks and take effective protective measures. In order to assess technical and legal aspects accurately, we work closely with experts from various sectors – always keeping an eye on product defects, causes of damage and possible claims for compensation.
