Product Liability and Mass Torts

Overview

The product liability and mass torts working group assists manufacturers with risk assessment, labeling, crisis management, tort liability issues, exposure issues and product warranties. Our multidisciplinary team helps manufacturers avoid, mitigate and defend against product liability, class actions and mass torts arising from injuries occurring in the United States and abroad relating to COVID-19. We can help you develop and execute a comprehensive approach to guide you through this complex and fast‐moving situation, counsel you on applicable regulations providing immunity to certain manufacturers and distributors of COVID-19 related products, including the PREP Act and other state and federal regulations, help walk you through amending contracts to mitigate future tort liability, and partner with you to defend against any claims or litigation that may arise from the global pandemic.
