All-Natural, Rich with Essential Antioxidants: Product Advertising and Consumer Fraud Claims in the Food and Beverage Industry


Created on June 01, 2017



This program, led by attorneys Lauren Aguiar, Anthony Dryer, and Jordan Feirman, provides an overview of recent trends and decisions involving advertising claims and consumer fraud issues in the food and beverage industry.

This program examines recent decisions and pending litigation involving food and beverage claims, and provides practical advice to both advertisers in this space and potential litigants who may be asserting or defending against such claims.
