Case Study: Financial Loss


A company designs and manufactures a drug delivery system. They supply the device to their customer who fills the device with a drug. The device supplied to the customer is defective. There has been no injury or property damage claim and the company is not providing a service. The customer sues for pure financial loss in respect of negligence and breach of contract.

Regulatory services

A company provides regulatory services to overseas pharmaceutical companies to enable them to license their products in the European Union. The company fails in the application process which results in a pure financial loss to the customer.

Contract manufacturing organisation
