Manufacturing & Products

At 2TG, we have considerable experience working with manufacturing clients, distributers and retailers as well as their insurers and reinsurers in relation to product law. We advise across a range of highly regulated sectors including life sciences, health and beauty, automotive and aviation, consumer goods and heavy industry.

The increasingly complex issues arising out of global manufacturing and distribution, international supply chain networks and the importance placed on reputation have all contributed to the demand for our advice in this area. We are well placed to assist clients, from small local businesses to large multinational companies, on all commercial law matters relating to product manufacturing and any subsequent defects and deficiencies.

We are especially well known for our ability to manage complex multi-jurisdictional product liability litigation due to our expertise in private international law, providing specialist advice and representation on jurisdiction, conflict of law, applicable law and related issues, including enforcement of judgments. The emphasis on the ‘internationalisation’ of work plays to our strength in this area.

We are also specialists at running the mass tort litigation which frequently arises in relation to product failures. This can be both domestic and international group litigation and across a wide range of industry areas. Recent and current examples include acting on the high-profile diesel emissions litigation, disputes in relation to cladding defects, claims concerning metal hip and inter-ocular lens replacement and breast and sterilisation implants, and cases regarding the effects of drugs and vaccinations.

We often draw on our related areas of expertise in insurance, in relation to coverage, clinical negligence and personal injury, in relation to medical devices and pharmaceutical claims, property damage, when defective products are often at the root of fire and flood damage, and professional negligence.

We are also frequently instructed to advise and appear in Public Inquiries and Investigations, many of which are established to scrutinise the failings of products and systems, on related inquests and also in commercial litigation arising from the defects in question. Recent relevant examples include the Grenfell Public Inquiry, the Post Office Inquiry and the Blood Inquiry.
