Product Liability in Australia

Baker & McKenzie's Product Liability Group is experienced in facilitating product recalls and crisis management. We are also active in defending and initiating product liability litigation. Our knowledge in product liability, coupled with our seamless interaction with Baker & McKenzie's Dispute Resolution and Technology, Communications & Commercial Groups ensures that our client advice is current, comprehensive and comes from leaders in the field.

In the event of product failure or potential litigation, companies must be able to react swiftly and be ready to implement product recalls urgently. We understand this urgency and have a team of lawyers in place to work with our clients in minimising potential exposure, conducting effective product recalls and, through our integrated global platform, defending claims across multiple jurisdictions.

In the case of product recalls, it is often realised that quality controls were breached through the use of a separate overseas manufacturer. Our access to Baker & McKenzie's integrated global platform means we have the capability to review, and pursue, our clients' rights in any jurisdiction.
