Practice/Industry Group Overview

We are proud to assist clients with issues concerning all products under the jurisdiction of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and other federal safety agencies.

At Goldberg Segalla, we regularly counsel and advise clients on numerous issues concerning compliance with safety regulations, mandatory reporting requirements and the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA). Our attorneys represent product manufacturers and importers before the CPSC, NHTSA and other federal and state regulators in product defect investigations, investigations regarding civil penalties, enforcement proceedings and product recalls. We have an excellent working relationship with safety regulators and have assisted in the negotiation and implementation of recalls involving an extensive array of products, including:

  • Toys
  • Home appliances
  • Power tools
  • Juvenile products
  • Fans
  • Garments
  • Heaters
  • Motor vehicle equipment
  • Jewelry
  • Numerous other types of consumer products

Goldberg Segalla has also served as national counsel—coordinating the defense of numerous recalled products—and as lead counsel in a large number of federal and state individual consumer actions and consumer class actions in courts across the country.  We are regularly called upon by our clients who manufacture consumer products, including children’s products and other household products that could potentially cause injury to children, to assist them in presenting their position to the CPSC and Health Canada regarding proposed new regulations and requirements, individually and through industry trade organizations.
