Government Investigations and Crisis Management
Quality control, product liability and product fraud
Issues involving quality control and product liability, such as performance falsification, improper inspection, data alteration and/or incidents that occur as a result of manufacturing failure or defects necessitate a simultaneous and appropriate investigation of facts, internal disciplinary action and dealing with customers and business connections as well as regulators. These issues may affect the life and body of a person and, as more products are being exported, there is an increase in the number of cases exposed by foreign regulators. Handling such cases inappropriately may result in severe reputational damage to a company within Japan and abroad, to the point that the survival of the business may be at stake.
Having handled numerous incidents involving quality control, product liability and product fraud in Japan and abroad, and based on such accumulative knowhow, AMT is able to provide legal advice that is individually tailored to each case.
