Products Law

Whether you design, manufacture, distribute or sell a product in Canada or you represent a client that does, you need Canada’s products law firm. We offer strategic, actionable, high value advice for every point in the product lifecycle from the first spark of genius, through regulatory compliance to the potential of a product recall. And if a product liability case goes to court, you can breathe easier knowing our products law litigators have been successful in some of the highest profile proceedings in Canada.
