Environmental & Product Liability

Environmental & Product Liability

Hausfeld's lawyers use their expertise to initiate a change of direction in the climate crisis.

The firm is supporting sixteen young people from around the world who have filed a legal complaint with the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child ("CRC") against five of the world's largest economies - Argentina, Brazil, France, Germany and Turkey – which stand accused of inaction on the climate crisis. This is the first time that a complaint focusing on climate change and its impact on human rights, particularly children's rights, has been made to the UN CRC.

Furthermore, Hausfeld represents clients in all matters of product liability. Our clients benefit from our lawyers' award-winning expertise in settlement negotiations and litigation. For example, we represent a major start-up company against a supplier of defective goods. Hausfeld also played a decisive role in dealing with the so-called diesel scandal.
