Product Recall

Compliance & Regulatory

What is involved?

The recent Grenfell tragedy means that product safety is now, more than ever, considered a priority by the Government and regulators alike.

Even where a fault is recognised early, companies are often unsure whether they have the responsibility of carrying out an investigation and, if appropriate, issuing a product recall. Any failure to act appropriately will be seized upon by Trading Standards who have a wide range of powers which include prosecution.

That is where we come in. Our dedicated experts have the experience to navigate companies through what, at the best of times, can be an unduly complex and difficult process. This includes advising companies regarding any potential criminal liability, orchestrating internal investigations, and, if appropriate, advising companies on whether they should instigate a recall.

Why choose Freeths?

  • Our experts use experience, understanding and strategy to calmly lead you through any internal investigation
  • We can, where appropriate, liaise and negotiate with Trading Standards on your behalf
  • We have advised companies across all conceivable business sectors
