Innovation, automation and e-commerce have transformed the manufacturing and consumer goods sector. To remain globally competitive, manufacturers and suppliers of consumer goods need to be smart and agile in their product development, procurement and labour practices. Harnessing advanced technologies, new materials and the Internet of Things to transform production and distribution has driven many of our insured clients’ successes.
We help our clients identify and manage traditional manufacturing and increasingly in Australia, consumer law distribution risks and claims. This includes product liability, contractual and IP disputes, labour and employment relations, and supply risks, across Australia and New Zealand and into international export markets.
We also have a strike team who assist if a crisis occurs when automation and digital channels are compromised through cyber-attacks or products must be recalled after tampering.
