This virtual classroom seminar addresses the circumstances in which product liability claims may be brought by overseas residents against Defendants in the courts of England & Wales, as opposed to the courts of their country of residence.
The implications as to the recovery of costs and damages will be addressed, as well as the practical implications of managing such claims involving overseas law firms and English agents, and the interlocking principles concerning jurisdiction and applicable law.
This live session will also address the approach of the English courts to liability and causation when dealing with claims under the Consumer Protection Act 1987 (implementing the EC Product Liability Directive), and how this may differ from the approach of courts in other jurisdictions including the EU and Australia.
These issues are of relevance both for Claimants who may be considering such a claim, and for potential Defendants (manufacturers, importers and distributors) who may be considering the implications of setting up a subsidiary in the UK in respect of litigation risk/exposure.
