At times of crisis, clients call on Crefovi, and its renowned ‟Product liability” department, to represent them in complex product liability actions.
A trial-ready ‟Product liability” team
Product manufacturers know that even the most vigilant, safety-conscious companies must be prepared to respond to serious product liability claims. Compared to other torts, the evidentiary burden for claimants is relatively low, and potential monetary and reputational harm to defendants can be extraordinarily high.
Crefovi has a practice, which defends high-stakes litigation, ranging from toxic torts, to product liability and product recalls, to multi-jurisdictional consumer class actions. For companies facing enterprise-threatening litigation in hostile venues, settlement may not be an option. In those cases, Crefovi offers a bench of seasoned litigation lawyers with a record of success in bench and trials in courts across Europe. The team’s success is predicated on the courtroom skills of its trial lawyers and their substantive expertise in handling complex scientific and technical matters. When complex cases need to be settled, Crefovi’s lawyers craft outside-the-box solutions and draw on the firm’s ‟Litigation” practice to bring them to closure.
