“Product Liability Claims Can Be A Global Threat To Companies”

A partner and product liability practice head at the Signature Litigation law firm said that though product liability claims start in one jurisdiction, they can “spread all around the world.”

Sylvie Gallage-Alwis said the best examples are the global concern stemming from lawsuits against Bayer over glyphosate and Google over data privacy, which are resulting in policy responses all over the world. She attributes the growth of mass litigation to “fear, risk, and stress,” meaning that the lack “of a causal link or a concrete injury does not mean that courts will dismiss such claims.”
