We have acted for manufacturers, distributors, importers, exporters, sellers, wholesalers and retailers for in connection with losses alleged to have occurred from use of products alleged to be defective, by design, manufacture, shipment, intermediate alteration, or sale – or where there are failure to warn or instruct issues.

We also sometimes act for those sustaining injuries from defective products or suffering a business loss from use of a defective product in their own manufacturing process. We act for insurers, but also for manufacturers or distributors themselves.

Local and Foreign Clients

Clients may be companies carrying on business in Ontario, elsewhere in Canada, or outside of Canada. We have experience in cases emanating from US, Europe and elsewhere and in working with a foreign client’s local counsel in cross-border litigation in multi-jurisdictional claims.

We can assist foreign litigation counsel concerning goods manufactured in or distributed from Ontario.
