Tobacco Litigation 20 February 2015

Torben Bondrop of Plesner, Copenhagen, will deliver a lecture concerning the Danish tobacco litigation on 20 February 2014 :

  • Product liability for smoking-related damage outside the EU directive
  • The concept of dependence, addiction or habituation
  • The question of causality
  • The state of the art defence (“system damage" in Scandinavia) within product liability
  • Declarations of tar and nicotine - are they misleading?
  • The EU Directive on product liability and claims for damages caused by cigarette smoking
  • Is there room for a next case in Scandinavia on alcohol-related health damage?

Torben Bondrop specialises in general insurance and tort law.  In addition to traditional insurance law, Torben focuses on consultants’ liability, product liability, D&O liability, general commercial liability and reinsurance.  He is highly experienced in litigation and arbitration proceedings in those areas.
