Insurance and product liability 

Our Insurance and product liability practice advises and represents insurers and reinsurers, financial services institutions and insurance intermediaries, and policy holders. In addition we advise manufacturers, suppliers and distributors of commercial and consumer products on a broad range of commercial and legal disputes.

Thanks to Eversheds International, you can take advantage of the specialised and highly recognised lawyers we have in almost all European jurisdictions. This enables us to give you seamless cross-border advice.

Our Munich team advises insurers and brokers on product design and distribution across the different classes of insurance. We offer assistance with claims handling, but also with contractual, coverage and supervisory issues. We also advise policyholders on risk assessment and analyse exposures to liability.

Our lawyers pursue, or defend, claims in negotiations, in front of ordinary courts or in alternative dispute resolution. We have particular experience in the areas of third party liability insurance such as:

  • D&O
  • professional indemnity
  • general liability
  • product liability
  • drug liability.

In the field of product liability and product safety, we provide advice on liability prevention and product safety compliance, quality issues, and crisis situations such as product recalls, mass tort and large losses.

Clients of the team includes those in the automotive, transportation, supplier and electrical/electronics industry, manufacturers, importers and distributors of the wide range of consumer products, pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers as well as operators of large scale industrial plants.
