Food Safety Attorneys

L+G has five offices on California’s Central Coast (Monterey, Salinas, Hollister, King City, Paso Robles). L+G’s team of food safety attorneys have earned a high reputation as excellent litigators and advisors in agricultural product liability matters and food safety regulatory compliance.
Our food safety lawyers counsel our clients in a variety of pro-active programs designed to reduce or eliminate future product liability exposure. We believe that counselling our clients regarding issues of crisis preparedness and response, regulatory compliance, insurance coverage, and coordination with regulatory authorities not only lessen the possibility of food contamination and increase the likelihood that your company will not be implicated in an outbreak but also prepares your company with and places it in a position to respond quickly, mitigate losses and most importantly protect your stakeholder, customers and consumers. These actions can be the difference in the success or failure of your business.
No one wants to hear about a possible food safety issue. However, it is something that is a growing risk based on the sheer amount of food we produce and may occur despite adhering to the highest food safety standards. The Firm’s food safety lawyers represent companies in cases involving a broad range of products and, in recent years, have been involved in some of the nation’s most high-profile produce liability litigation related to Salmonella, Hepatitis A, and E.Coli.
L+G along with our consultants, have represented and worked on the following subjects and have developed significant expertise related to food safety law and agricultural product matters such as:
•   Insurance coverage
•   Foodborne illnesses
•   FDA matters
•   Criminal issues related to FDA’s investigations
•   Product liability
•   Legislative hearings and political reaction
•   Multi-District litigation proceedings
•   Attorney General actions
•   Public relations/messaging
•   Food safety audits and reviews

The Firm’s food safety lawyers have handled product liability matters from inception through a jury trial. Our food attorneys also provide claims management advice and have assisted clients in organizing regional and national counsel programs.
