Surging demand for vaping products in a loosely regulated industry with a global supply chain exposes manufacturers, distributors and retailers who sell vape supplies to higher risk and exposure to lawsuits for allegedly defective products and other liability matters. Hall Booth Smith’s Vaping/E-Cigarette Practice Group defends clients in a wide variety of claims in both federal and state court, as well as multi-plaintiff class actions. Our team’s knowledge of underlying causation, scientific and medical considerations, and international manufacturing issues help our clients create more effective and proactive defense strategies.
The vaping Report blog examines the complex and interconnected product liability, scientific and technical issues, and health considerations in lawsuits stemming from vaping and e-cigarette products. HBS’s team also explores the often opaque global manufacturing, distribution and retail channels that can complicate efforts to identify related parties, obtain jurisdiction, enforce a judgment or recover a contribution should fault be found. The blog also monitors and analyzes changes in regulatory or legislative matters, and judgments that set new precedent in the fast-changing and loosely regulated vaping industry.
