Product liability & product safety

Our product liability and product safety experts advise global brands in all major industries on cross-border litigation, worldwide product recalls (including RAPEX notifications), product compliance (including labelling requirements and safety standards) and regulatory investigations.  We understand the value of our client's product and reputation, and the importance of protecting both in a crisis.  We provide swift and effective advice when responding to product safety incidents, liability issues and recalls. We provide an international offering with experts who understand the variations in laws between different jurisdictions.

We work with clients in the most complex and dynamic sectors including technology, life sciences, automotive and autonomous vehicles, and consumer goods (including electronics, toys and domestic appliances, food and drink and connected home devices).  Taylor Wessing acts for 35 of the world's biggest brands. 

Our forward thinking and innovative approach combined with our market-leading technology focus means we are constantly tracking the advancements of tomorrow (including connectivity and autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, internet of things).  Product law is changing against this backdrop, and businesses need to be alive to the new risks emerging in a fast moving landscape.
