Product Liability and Recall

Expert commercial and regulatory advice.


Managing a broad spectrum of product recall and faulty product claims

The McCabes team manages a broad spectrum of product recall and faulty product claims, triggered through a defect and when safety concerns are raised regarding a product. We defend and manage product liability claims from the moment concern is raised. We advise clients on the actions they need to take to minimise the damage to their brand and reputation, and to manage regulators and comply with investigations by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

Advising on these claims usually involves assessment of complex circumstances, scrutiny of multiple insuring clauses and exclusions, and management of various individuals with competing interests, all in a high-pressure environment. We understand the importance of immediate action in claims of this nature and the priority to protect the health and safety of consumers as well as the brand reputation of clients to mitigate potential losses.

Our success with our clients is recognised through being named in the Doyle’s Guide since 2012 as a Leading Public & Product Liability Law Firm.
