Farris LLP: Vancouver's Law Firm

Product Liability

Farris’ Product Liability lawyers provide legal services to manufacturers in a broad range of industries including managing all aspects of products liability and complex tort litigation.

We have defended and advised companies in cases alleging traditional causes of action such as defective manufacture, failure to warn and defective design, as well as more complex theories involving concert of action, conspiracy and market share liability. Where a product manufacturer is facing claims in multiple jurisdictions, it requires carefully co-ordinated and consistently implemented defence strategies. When instructed to do so, our practice group members are able to work in close collaboration with other independent law firms to provide such co-ordination and consistency.

Our lawyers have a thorough understanding of our client’s products and their design and manufacture. We work closely with our clients to understand and achieve their business goals, enabling us to present the best defence in the courtroom as well as to identify and advise on any emerging issues and regulatory/governmental business effects our clients may face. Our experience includes representation of leading manufacturers in a broad spectrum of industries, including tobacco, asbestos, chemical products, among others. In addition, Farris’ database of experts includes epidemiologists, doctors, engineers, pharmacologists, physicians and other industry specific experts to assist in our clients’ defence.

Farris Partner, Jeffrey Kay, Q.C. is considered to be among the world’s leading product liability lawyers; he was named in The Legal Media Group Guide World’s Leading Product Liability Lawyers, and he has also been chosen as one of the Who’s Who of Product Liability Defence Lawyers.
