Shawn N. Skolky


I work closely with clients on product compliance and safety issues, helping them successfully navigate even the most complex regulatory environments.

Shawn is a trusted regulatory adviser and litigator for multinational companies seeking representation on product safety reporting obligations, recalls, safety investigations and enforcement matters involving the US Consumer Product Safety Act, the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act, the US Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, the Federal Trade Commission Act, the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act and other federal and state regulations. Shawn advises on safety, design and regulatory issues (pre- and post-market) and how to deal with regulatory authorities and handle crises, including global recalls. Shawn also guides companies through the recall process and has helped clients avoid recalls of consumer goods ranging from children’s products to home furnishings to fitness equipment. Shawn regularly advises companies on product warning and labeling matters, including development of strategies to mitigate litigation risk, as well as on compliance with Federal Trade Commission truth-in-advertising regulations and labeling and registration requirements of various federal agencies. Shawn’s regulatory practice spans a number of federal agencies, including the FTC, the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Environmental Protection Agency.
