Global Product Liability


In Nigeria, product liability may arise in a number of scenarios. These include the distribution and sale of defective or hazardous products; breach of post-sales duties, representations, express or implied warranties; or negligence.

Our brand protection practice provides strategic advice and guidance to businesses at all levels on product safety, crisis management, incident investigation, voluntary and involuntary recall, compliance reviews and assistance across a broad range of issues. We act for a select group of clients in the food and beverage, electronics and pharmaceutical sectors; from indigenous companies to multinational corporations.

Food and Beverage

We are a trusted advisor to market leaders and established companies in the food, beverage and manufacturing industries in Nigeria. We continue to provide advice and guidance to household names in these industries on key issues, including compliance, labelling, registration, marketing, advertisement and related regulatory issues.


Product failure resulting in likely property loss must be carefully managed at all times. This involves gathering and reviewing all relevant information, determining the best approach to be adopted and continually reviewing the situation. We have provided general compliance and strategic advice to companies faced with recalling electronics from the market and providing replacement and repair services.


We have represented leading manufacturers of pharmaceutical products during meetings and engagements with regulators, provided strategic advice, reviewed and audited compliance levels with requirements for product safety and recall.
