While our firm is highly capable in defending lawsuits, we believe strongly in prevention. Accordingly, our Products Liability team is available to work diligently with clients to analyze potential risks and to prevent future problems. Those efforts include:

  • Loss prevention and product safety programs
  • Product liability audits
  • Reviews of product advertising, warnings, instructions, and warranties
  • Design and preparation of product recall procedures and strategies
  • Document management programs and policies
  • Programs to ensure compliance with regulatory and statutory requirements

Gray Plant Mooty’s Product Liability team can work with you and your insurance carriers to minimize costs through self-insured retention, deductibles, and captive insurance programs. We can also counsel you on advertising and warnings falling under various state and federal consumer protection laws, as well as issues related to the federal Consumer Products Safety Act and the Consumer Products Safety Commission.
