Product Safety

Protecting products throughout the life cycle.

Your products receive our end-to-end proactive attention, from compliance issues through labeling consumer goods for market – always adhering to ever-changing safety regulations. Your reporting requirements, ethical considerations, product warnings, warranties and instructions, and submissions and complaint responses related to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) are matters on which we assist. We help companies comply with state, federal and international regulations, as well as industry and consensus standards. Our attorneys counsel clients on the development of new products and product lines, including formation of internal compliance programs. 

In addition to our proactive work, we also guide clients through incident investigations, audits, recalls, and other corrective actions across a wide variety of product categories including furniture and mattresses, children’s products, technology, and electrical products as well as automotive, explosive and chemical products.

Manufacturers, distributors, importers, retailers, and trade organizations are among those who rely on our time-sensitive and cost-effective counsel.
