Masks Sold Without CE, Landing Lawyer Recover Over $110,000 for Irish Client Through Mediation

In March 2020, demand for masks was so high around the world. An Irish company purchased masks at nearly hundreds of thousands of dollars from a company in Xiamen, China.

Before signing the contract, the Chinese supplier assured on oath that all models of masks they produced had CE certifications and the company's official website had various certificates, such as CE and FDA, indicating that the masks could be sold legally.

As a result, the Irish client signed an agreement with the Chinese supplier, paid hundreds of thousands of dollars and sold the masks to other customers after receiving different batches of masks.

However, the Irish client was soon informed by the UK government that the masks they were selling had faulty CE marks and that they were to stop selling them. Upon learning of this, the Irish client immediately contacted the Chinese supplier, only to learn that the Chinese supplier had deliberately concealed the invalid CE certificate and made repeated excuses, refusing for compensation.

The Irish client then approached lawyers Larry Zhou and Linda Wu of Landing (Shenzhen) Law Office.
