How to Stay Out of the Little Shop of Horrors: Defending Your Food Marketing Claims Without Feeding the Litigation Beast

By Invitation Only

Email to request a recording of this webinar.

The interplay between government regulators, self-regulatory bodies, consumer classes, and competitors regarding food and health claims has fed a series of false advertising lawsuits that have far-reaching implications for all advertisers.

Join Kelley Drye & Warren LLP on Thursday, August 16 for a webinar that will identify "the beast" – trends driving litigation in the food industry – and provide strategies in the fight to win – by getting the case dismissed or trying the case to victory. Two Kelley Drye attorneys who have been on the front line will provide lessons learned from several false advertising suits launched by POM Wonderful – which touched off dozens of cases in federal, state, and administrative courts – as well as the class action Simpson v. Challenge Dairy Products, Inc. and Kroger Corporation. The speakers will identify what other companies can learn from these cases about federal preemption, the effectiveness of counterclaims, and risk analysis in false advertising lawsuits.

Kelley Drye Speakers:
August T. Horvath, Partner, Sarah Roller, Partner

August 16, 2012 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM
