Food Law

The food sector is one of the most profitable in the German economy. For the most part, producers and retailers are concerned with public law issues related to labeling and ingredients, unfair competition, health foods, consumer protection, antitrust investigations and criminal law risks.

Other lawyers may also advise on aspects of ?compliance investigations, incl. ?white collar crime, ?antitrust, ?trademarks and unfair competition, ?pharmaceuticals and healthcare and ?distribution and franchising.
