The legal challenges our food and beverage clients face – rapidly evolving regulations, labeling class actions, global competition and product recalls – impact every aspect of business. To effectively rise to challenges and maximize opportunities, our team includes lawyers and consultants from nearly every practice group. Unlike our peer firms, we offer a trifecta of legal services addressing clients’ corporate, litigation and regulatory needs.

We provide domestic and international companies comprehensive assistance in the areas of securities, financing, franchising, IP, M&A, JVs, business reorganizations, litigation, regulatory compliance, bankruptcy and creditors’ rights, immigration, environmental concerns, labor and employment, employee benefits, real estate, antitrust, sponsorships, and technology and outsourcing. We represents some of the largest and most innovative manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, distributors, processors, brewers, vintners and bottlers.

Having walked the floors of food manufacturing facilities, presented in board rooms, and done everything in between, we assist companies at all stages of the “farm-to-fork” spectrum. And we do it well. Since inception, our team has consistently been involved in some of the industry’s biggest deals, cases and recalls.

Last, but certainly not least, members of our team literally wrote the book on food safety law; corporate counsel routinely rely upon not just the treatise, but the experience on which it is based.
