Defects and other incidents related to food and other consumer products must be dealt with promptly and appropriately due to the potential threat to consumer health and safety and the likelihood of widespread media attention. We provide effective assistance in handling these situations, including dealing with consumers; conducting internal investigations; filing reports and notifications with administrative agencies as required under laws and regulations; handling disputes; assisting with public announcements; and dealing with recalls.

Expedient and experienced advice in the increasingly complex and specialized area of administrative disputes

A criminal act committed by a company’s officer or employee can have a devastating impact on the company—a sterling corporate reputation cultivated over many years can evaporate overnight. In these types of cases, from initial discovery of the criminal act to the conclusion of investigations and lawsuits, we advise clients from a medium to long term perspective by identifying critical factors that can affect a company’s very existence.

With extensive expertise and experience in dispute resolution and litigation, we are well equipped to assist clients when incidents of corporate misconduct arise. We anticipate the possibility of litigation while seeking to avoid it where possible, and we are prepared to protect the legal interests of our clients when cases actually proceed to litigation.
