Product liability

INTUITY usually assists pharmaceutical companies when their products are involved, notably in procedures raised by patients within the context of trials or standard care.

With class-actions on the verge of emerging in the health sector, product liability (mediation, damages compensation, civil and criminal proceedings) is becoming a major stake for the healthcare industry not only from a financial standpoint but also from a reputation perspective with impressive regulatory implications.

Its great reputation leads INTUITY to take part in all major topical cases.
