Product Liability

… quality counsel … at all levels of seniority

Chambers & Partners

For many years members of Temple Garden Chambers have been consistently recommended for Product Liability and related work by both Chambers UK and the Legal 500.

Chambers is rightly proud of the reputation that members have of acting both for claimants and for defendants/insurers. We believe this ensures that our barristers can provide advice and representation of the highest standard, which is independent and objective. As well as representing accident victims, we regularly act for insurers, manufacturers, producers and retailers, both large and small.

Temple Garden Chambers provides representation and advice on all product liability issues including related insurance coverage disputes. We bring our expertise in injury work particularly in the industrial and clinical context, to bear on the multiplicity of different claims to which defective products can and do give rise.

We have individual members with experience of product liability litigation in relation to a wide range of products/industry sectors including: aviation, automotive (including relating to motor vehicles and motorcycle), sports equipment including bicycles, domestic white goods and other appliances, televisions, industrial equipment, medical equipment and implants, tobacco, and foodstuffs. Members have particular experience of explosion and fire claims.

We are able to provide counsel at all levels of seniority for work ranging from small unitary claims to high value and / or group actions in both the personal injury and commercial arena. Where necessary, Chambers can provide a full team of counsel to deal with the often challenging legal and logistical issues that large scale litigation presents.

Our specialist costs team, many of whom have extensive personal injury experience, are also able to offer assistance with issues concerning cost budgeting and cost recovery.

The work of our product liability practitioners also complements many of the other Practice Areas within Chambers, including Personal Injury; Clinical Negligence; Inquests; and Health and Safety.

As so much product liability work is now resolved outside of Court, through mediations and settlement meetings, we are pleased to be able to offer bespoke ADR suites with disabled access: please see Facilities for further details. Chambers also boasts a number of fully accredited and qualified Mediators.
