By Sylvie Gallage-Alwis & Nicolas Ndiour

Partner Sylvie Gallage-Alwis and Associate Nicolas Ndiour have authored the Mondaq Product Liability Comparative guide for the jurisdiction of France.

Sylvie and Nicolas consider the legal regimes for product liability in France, together with the parties involved in product liability disputes, and the scope for parties outside of the jurisdiction to be the target of a suit. Sylvie and Nicolas also explore the basis for a liability and the definition of a ‘defective product’, as well as how to navigate product recalls.

Sylvie and Nicolas also examine the limitations for bringing a claim, and the available defences against a claim in France. They further outline the forums in which these claims are typically heard in France, together with the process for filing a suit, and explore the logistics for bringing and defending a product liability case in court.

Sylvie and Nicolas conclude by considering trends in the practice area, and likely developments, and provide key tips for corporates at risk of product liability claims.
