We help clients from the initial launch of a new product and throughout the product life cycle.
When clients face a product challenge, whether that be a marketing or food standards issue, we have successfully challenged adverse rulings. Where possible, we try to avoid court at all costs and make sure our clients' brands are protected.
Where a piece of food regulation is particularly challenging, we will talk directly to the Regulators and the Public Affairs Consultancy.
