Product Liability Litigation

Product manufacturers are aware that even the most careful, safety-oriented businesses are required to be prepared to defend significant claims involving alleged defects in their products. In Vietnam, the laws in this field are consumer-friendly while the potential financial and reputational harm to the business can be catastrophic.  The manufacturer, importer, the holder of the affixed trademarks, as well as the supplier (such as a retailer) of the product may all be held liable for the damages caused by defective products.  As such, it is important to have an experienced legal team to defend the company’s interests during these often complex, and expertise-driven proceedings.

Le & Tran has been defending large and mid-sized companies in significant product liability litigation for more than a decade. Our attorneys have been recognized by a number of independent legal ranking organizations in the South East Asia region including Chambers and Partners- Asia Pacific, Benchmark Litigation and Legal 500.  Over the years, we have provided practical, result-driven defense and solutions to our clients in numerous product liability matters.
