Product liability is an issue of growing importance in Poland. When potentially dangerous products are marketed, a claim in administrative proceedings can be brought, and damages in civil proceeding may be sought. Therefore, it is crucial for manufacturers, distributors, and sellers of goods to comply with regulatory/consumer protection requirements. DLA Piper is here to help, both when it comes to preventative advice and in resolving disputes of a civil or administrative nature. Our product liability lawyers in Poland have in-depth experience in three core areas:
DLA Piper has extensive experience in advising clients on product liability issues in the life sciences sector, including pharmaceuticals and medical devices, as well as foodstuffs. We handle crisis management related to product liability: we liaison with public bodies, negotiate with business partners and advise on consumer liability. We also have experience in reviewing clients' compliance with regulatory requirements governing promotional activities.
DLA Piper's Consumer Products Sector consists of more than 300 lawyers representing more than 1,500 consumer products companies in more than 30 countries around the world. In Poland, we have significant experience in advising on matters related to consumer products liability, assisting clients at the pre-trial stage of proceedings as well as in litigation. We also draft and review agreements and other documents concerning consumer products to help mitigate risks.
We provide comprehensive advice on product liability compliance and offer defense in all regulatory areas. We also understand the need to mitigate the impact of a constantly evolving regulatory framework on clients' businesses and create tailor-made compliance solutions that address clients' strategic goals while satisfying regulatory requirements. The litigation and regulatory team based in Warsaw helps domestic and international companies from the regulated sectors to liaise with public authorities and conduct court proceedings, as well as prepare internal compliance policies.
