Advertising & Product Regulatory

Skip to Germany content


We live in a world of increasingly stringent product regulatory requirements enforced through criminal, administrative and unfair competition proceedings. Ensuring your activities remain legal is a constant challenge - particularly on a global basis, where politics can interfere with consumer protection laws.

Gowling WLG can help. What sets us apart as a law firm is our ability to serve as commercial strategists who are able to consider the political, legal and scientific issues that are impacting your business. We tailor our legal advice to suit your needs, taking into account national peculiarities and non-harmonisation in the EU product regulatory and marketing rules.

We can help you make the best of a complex world – using loopholes and regulations subject to interpretation and the principle of free movement to achieve more positive results in EU product marketing.

Areas we cover include:

  • Administrative proceedings
  • Criminal law
  • Documentation of conformity
  • Food and beverage
  • Life sciences
  • Medical devices
  • Product recalls
  • Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals regulations (REACH)
  • Tobacco
  • Unfair competition

Our expertise helps you identify the most appropriate and convenient group for a specific new product, enabling you to achieve a maximum return on investment while avoiding regulatory pitfalls. Thanks to our long-standing industry expertise and recognised know-how - not just in the field of law, but also in biochemistry - you can trust our advice to always be sound, diligent and business-driven.
