Our Approach

We have a track record of successfully representing food and beverage clients in consumer fraud class actions, labeling challenges, false advertising claims, government enforcement actions, and supply chain disputes. We've served manufacturers, distributors, and retailers of food, beverages, dietary supplements, over-the-counter (OTC) drugs, homeopathic remedies, and other consumer goods. We've helped clients reduce their liability and, when feasible, shut down litigation early and cost-effectively. And we've defended companies in litigation relating to product production, labeling, distribution, and sales.

Our team can leverage its significant product safety and regulatory experience to advise you on risk management issues. And we'll partner with you to protect your business — from product creation through product launch, and while your products are in the marketplace.
