Leopold Borst advises German and international clients on product liability, product safety, and product compliance issues with a particular focus on the automotive, electronics, aviation and consumer goods industry.

Leopold supports clients in the worldwide coordination of complex product safety and product compliance cases across various jurisdictions. In doing so, he is particularly experienced with European and German market entry and safety requirements for products. Leopold's practice includes advising companies on product liability issues. He has experience in identifying product liability risks and represents companies with in and out-of-court product liability claims.

During his legal clerkship, Leopold worked for the German Federal Ministry of Health as well as for our offices in Washington, D.C. and Munich. Moreover, before joining Hogan Lovells, in addition to his legal degree, Leopold obtained a diploma in mechanical engineering from the Technical University of Munich. This allows him to even better handle our clients' challenges, particularly by working hand-in-hand with engineers and technical experts.
