Liability is one of the main areas of practice of our Commercial & Litigation Department.
In handling product liability cases, we always focus on rigorous risk prevention rather than having to deal with disputes. We have represented clients in product liability claims in areas such as consumer goods, industrial goods, (consumer) electronics, life sciences, food and automotive. We assist clients in product recall operations. Very often we act in these cases upon instruction from, or in close cooperation with, product liability insurers.
Our Professional Liability Practice encompasses cases where we act for professionals such as bankers, lawyers, brokers, architects, accountants, tax advisers, consultants, engineers and advisors. In determining a litigation strategy, we balance the insurance implications with the potential reputational risk for our client if the case is tried in public.
Lydian has been involved in the most high profile Belgian professional indemnity cases of recent years and we draw on that experience in advising new and existing clients.
