Regulatory and legal services are distinct but complementary. In a highly regulated and visible area like food and beverage, both regulatory and legal counsel are critical in creating freedom to operate.
Foodwit does not provide legal advice. Rather, as a firm focused on regulatory compliance and food safety, we interpret government regulations and policies, identify key regulatory and brand risks, and provide practical advice for mitigating these risks. With our team’s deep experience in government, law firms, in-house legal departments, and food companies of all sizes, we’re uniquely equipped to help our clients understand the full spectrum of regulatory challenges that food companies face - and to flag areas that may implicate legal risk and would benefit from a legal perspective.
Food companies of all sizes typically need support on legal matters such as contract development, product liability, trademark and intellectual property, litigation strategy, and transactional support. When legal support is advised, we refer clients to experts in our network of pragmatic attorneys and law firms specializing in the business of food. With Foodwit supporting their regulatory and food safety needs, our clients are empowered to partner with legal counsel in a highly focused, efficient way.
Sizing regulatory and food safety risks-and addressing how to best mitigate them-is a critical element of the due diligence process. As veterans of a highly regulated industry, we've been on both sides of the investment table: we've worked to successfully get companies through multiple fundraising exercises, and we've represented investors looking for an in-depth audit of a potential target's risks.
