Who's Who Legal Product Liability Defence

Christian Di Mauro is a dispute partner in the global product law practice at Hogan Lovells and is the chair of the Italian cross-practice life science team.

Christian is an experienced litigator with a focus on product litigation and product-related commercial, advisory and compliance work and general commercial disputes.

Christian works on helping international and Italian clients defending product liability claims, dealing with commercial disputes arising out of product safety and product quality issues, handling international product safety and compliance issues, conducting risk assessments, liaising with market surveillance authorities, and handling product related regulatory and criminal investigations. Whether it is a product related litigation, including domestic and cross-border commercial litigation and product related supply chain disputes, or a product safety and compliance issue, he helps clients in identifying the best strategies to manage and reduce the risk. 

The depth of Christian's experience, which spans over more than 16 years, includes advising on matters involving pharmaceutical products, vaccines, medical devices, electrical and electronic products, connected technologies, motor vehicles, industrial equipment, and cosmetics.

Thanks to the work done for life sciences companies over the last decade and to his in-depth knowledge of the industry (for which Christian was ranked as “next generation lawyer” by The Legal 500 in 2018), he has handled a high number of cutting-edge cases involving life sciences companies. He has led a team of highly specialised lawyers who recently scored a complete victory for a major client, obtaining a landmark decision in a leading case involving an anti-hepatitis B vaccine.

Christian's work also includes assisting technology companies in assessing legal risks and in developing liability mitigation strategies related to the launch of innovative products, as well as handling product crises and coordinating cross-jurisdiction product safety actions.

Qualified to practice both in Italy and France and being based in both the Milan and the Paris offices, Christian leverages his knowledge of the French legal system and culture to help French clients with operations in Italy and vice versa, leading a team of Italian litigation lawyers specifically dedicated to those clients.

Christian was named as Acritas Star in 2017 (in the top 10 globally, in terms of the highest number of independent nominations) and in 2018, and was recognised as one of the leading product lawyers in Italy by WWL: Product Liability Defence 2018 and WWL: Life Sciences 2018.

He is a member of the International Association of Defence Counsel.

WWL says: Christian Di Mauro is a highly respected name in the Italian market who sources highlight for his expertise in a number of areas, including automotive, consumer goods and medical device litigation.
