With an established presence in markets that make up 80 percent of the world economy, Baker & McKenzie is uniquely positioned to provide strategic advice on local consumer laws, practices and customs. We apply a holistic approach to identifying and managing potential risks, helping businesses protect their reputation wherever their products and services are sold.

We have acted on some of the most sensitive and high profile international product recall matters, swiftly mobilizing seamless assistance in the promulgation of recall programs and in the direction of recall campaigns. And when necessary, our lawyers can act in multiple forums and before courts to protect your business. Baker & McKenzie’s litigators have handled thousands of product liability and mass tort matters across numerous industries.

How we can help

Across borders and industries, our lawyers provide seamless advice and tailored services on

  • Product safety strategies and key issues arising in product safety law
  • Setting up Product Safety Committees and Product Recall Protocols
  • Risk transfer techniques through contractual terms and insurance
  • Procedures relating to product safety and product recall
  • Project management for international product recalls
  • Brand protection and reputational issues arising from product liability and recall

In Germany, in case of non-compliance with labeling or registration requirements possible authority action is neither the only nor the largest threat for a company placing products on the market. The sharp sword to protect against is rather injuctive relief sought by a competitor. We have seen in recent practice that companies increasingly use this possibility to try to stop their competitors from selling products on the German market.
In this legal alert, we discuss the recently proposed restrictions on retail discount campaigns, discount stores and shopping festivals in Turkey. Through this draft regulation, the Turkish Ministry of Customs and Trade further demonstrates its commitment to regulating the retail market.
Authorities have raised the minimum amount for consumer lawsuits in Turkish courts, a figure set annually. Disputed amounts below the new threshold (approximately USD1,200) must be submitted to consumer arbitral tribunals. Misfiled applications may be rejected.
