Product Safety

Keller and Heckman Europe advises clients on matters regarding EU product compliance, safety, liability and defence.

Given our expertise in chemicals and chemical law, we advise on issues regarding the presence of restricted chemicals in consumer and end products, and when necessary on corrective action required – particularly on legal crisis management issues and recalls.
