The food and beverage industry is always evolving and our attorneys are up-to-date on the multitude of unique issues faced by those in the industry. Since its inception, Baker Sterchi has successfully defended food and beverage businesses. With years of experience, our attorneys bring a keen sense of industry knowledge and an astute understanding of the broad range of issues our clients encounter.
Whether confronted with matters related to: nutrition labeling; food contamination; dram shop liability; consumer protection act claims; product liability; premises liability; employment claims; franchising; or, commercial issues, our attorneys have the experience to guide matters to an efficient resolution.
Baker Sterchi represents national and regional restaurant chains, national coffee chains, food and beverage manufacturers, distributors, grocery stores, packaged food companies, taverns, and other food and beverage businesses. Our attorneys have successfully defended national class-action matters on behalf of a national restaurant chain on issues arising from menu nutrition labeling; a complex area that is constantly evolving.
With a national reputation in products liability defense, Baker Sterchi also handles product claims related to the food and beverage industry. Our depth of experience in handling employment issues is also a benefit to industry clients. We assist clients in matters related to employer policy manuals, non-compete agreements, wrongful termination disputes, and sexual harassment claims.
Our attorneys routinely speak at seminars for insurers and in-house counsel, who are tasked with guiding their respective companies through the maze of issues that impact the food and beverage industry.
