Public and Products Liability

About

Our lawyers have extensive experience in a range of public and product liability matters.  On the instructions of our insurer and self-insurer clients we have acted in  a wide spectrum of industries and commercial activities.  As with the benefits of engaging us on other insurance matters, BTLawyers can provide resolutions to matters efficiently and effectively, resulting in reduced claims cost and duration.

Specialised expertise is particularly important when considering which firm to engage in public and product liability matters. Our lawyers are intimately familiar with the claims process and seek to resolve matters quickly and efficiently producing the best possible outcome.

Our lawyers are familiar with the most notable experts to brief when there are contested matters requiring third party experts, such as engineers or accountants. When it comes to investigating the matter, our lawyers will conduct their own investigations efficiently and produce advices that thoroughly identify the relevant issues and provide resolutions for each particular aspect of the case.

Our Approach

Once engaged, we quickly evaluate the issues and provide clear commercial advice on how to approach the dispute in the best interests of our client. Working with our clients we focus on identifying our clients’ commercial objectives at an early stage and develop a strategy to achieve them. This ensures that realistic goals are set and the best commercial outcomes are achieved.

We make full use of all available mechanisms to achieve a successful dispute resolution. These include the use of alternative dispute resolution processes – such as direct negotiation, mediation, expert determination and arbitration. We proactively pursue the agreed strategy keeping our clients fully informed with clear and concise reports as the matter progresses. While a trial is rarely the preferred resolution mechanism, if the alternative dispute resolution avenues fail we will vigorously pursue and protect our client’s rights and interests with a fully prepared and resourced case. Whichever resolution course is followed, we are committed to the protection of our client’s commercial interests.
