Liability - Product liability and Professional liability

Liability is one of the main areas of practice of our Commercial & Litigation Department.

In the product liability cases that we handle, 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. Furthermore, 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 practice in Professional Liability encompasses cases where we act for many professionals, such as bankers, lawyers, brokers, architects, accountants, tax advisers, consultants, engineers and advisors. The awareness of the insurance implications but also the potential reputational damage for the client if the case is tried in public are obviously important in determining a litigation strategy from the outset. Lydian has been involved in the most high profile Belgian professional liability cases of the last few years.
