Legal Risks to Consumer Products Companies 2018

Running a successful consumer products company in a rapidly evolving business landscape is no small feat. Changing technologies, an uncertain economy, and shifting government regulations further complicate the already challenging task of navigating legal issues in this increasingly complex environment.

Developing and maintaining consumer trust is central to operating a successful consumer products company. Product recalls, contaminations, product defects, privacy violations, and data breaches can all undermine consumer trust in a company and its products. These risks, and the risks of related litigation, only increase when products are connected to the internet, contain sensitive consumer information, or operate autonomously. Modern companies cannot anticipate all problems or guard against all risks, but should be mindful of common industry pitfalls.
