Product Liability & Complex Torts

Product liability and complex tort claims strike at the heart of business and can pose significant threats to a company’s well-earned brand. WLA’s global legal network will work quickly and effectively to prevent potential litigation and minimize damages, or litigate the case based on your goals using trial-proven attorneys.

With law firms across the United States and around the world, our attorneys will consult with you during the product development and marketing planning process to avert potential compliance, regulatory, and other such issues; work with you to facilitate product recalls in multiple countries; defend your company in tort, class action, and multi-jurisdiction litigation; and coordinate communication with regulatory authorities and the media around the globe.
Our attorneys represent companies at every point in the distribution chain. We also have worldwide experience in a range of industries from automobiles to consumer products, and many of the practice group members belong to niche working groups that focus on food, dietary supplements, pharmacy compounding, drugs, devices, cosmetics, as well as industrial equipment and materials, chemicals, storage tanks, breast implants, and building products.
