Food Litigation

Food and beverage companies have become the target for both state and federal regulators, as well as plaintiff-side consumer attorneys. These regulatory disputes or civil litigations are difficult enough for large, publicly-traded food companies, but they can become "bet the farm" issues for emerging and middle market food companies, who we routinely represent.

DWT's food litigation team is part of a larger, fully-integrated food and beverage team that serves a nationwide client base and offers the full range of legal services that startup, emerging, and middle market food companies need. With more than 20 years of experience and one of the most experienced and comprehensive food litigation teams in the United States, we are not just lawyers who like food, we are food lawyers.

Specifically, our litigation team handles several types of matters that food companies may face, including:

  • Food labeling
  • Advertising/consumer fraud
  • Food safety/product liability
  • Food safety risk management and response plans
  • Food safety recalls
  • Consumer class action defense

We hope your company never has to face issues like these. But if it does, you should consider DWT, as we will provide your company with practical advice and representation in order to allow you to do what you do best and succeed while doing it.
