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.

Part of a Comprehensive Food and Beverage Team
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 comprehensive food litigation teams in the United States, we are not just lawyers who like food, we are food lawyers.

Types of Litigation We Handle
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: We will provide your company with practical advice and representation and let you focus on doing what you do best.
