In a year that includes winning dismissal of slack fill and food labeling class actions; guiding food manufacturing clients through more than $1 billion of acquisitions; serving as go-to regulatory counsel for companies selling and delivering food in e-commerce platforms; and defending market-leading companies in high profile foodborne illness outbreaks and recalls, Faegre Baker Daniels’ food and beverage team has earned a spot as a Law360 ‘Practice Group of the Year’ for 2017.
With an eye toward landmark matters and general excellence, Law360 selected FaegreBD as one of only five firms in the U.S. to be recognized for outstanding work in 2017 on behalf of the food and beverage industry, ranging from advising food and beverage clients on significant mergers and acquisitions to defending them nationwide in multidistrict, class action and other high stakes commercial and personal injury litigation.
“We are honored that FaegreBD’s food and beverage team has been selected by Law360 as one of the Food and Beverage ‘Practice Groups of the Year’ for 2017,” said Sarah Brew, FaegreBD partner and leader of the firm’s Food Litigation and Regulatory Practice. “We think this recognition not only celebrates the big litigation wins and major deals we’ve handled for our clients over the past year, but also showcases the tremendous depth and breadth of experience we bring to the food and beverage industry as a whole.”
FaegreBD’s food and beverage team fully integrates regulatory, transactional, and litigation services, a unique distinction in this practice area. The food team consists of a focused core of regulatory specialists and litigators from our firm’s several geographic locations worldwide and also draws on a deep bench of legal experience in mergers and acquisitions, financing, general corporate matters including contracting and risk management, insurance coverage, environmental law, and trademark and intellectual property.
More broadly, FaegreBD’s national food and agribusiness industry team is comprised of more than 150 lawyers worldwide, who have specific knowledge in core areas crucial to the world’s emerging and leading food and agribusiness companies.
