Food, Beverage & Agriculture

Winston & Strawn LLP has decades of experience representing the interests of food, beverage, and agriculture clients who often become the focus of regulators, opportunistic competitors, and consumers. Our attorneys serve as trusted advisors and valued business partners to the industry’s leading companies—handling some of their highest-profile cases. We have adopted an industry-focused approach and dedicated a team of multinational and multi-disciplined attorneys that focuses on laws, regulations, and market forces that impact our clients in this sector.

We represent producers, growers, packaged food makers, ingredient manufacturers, restaurant chains, bakeries, dairies, grocery stores, confectioneries, wineries, breweries, distilleries, distributors, and franchisors, among others, in the United States and around the world. Our dedicated lawyers for this industry understand the complexities involved in food, beverage, and agriculture legal issues and regularly advise on corporate and finance, regulatory, counseling, and litigation matters.

Reflecting our track record of success in this area, Winston & Strawn was named the 2015 Food & Beverage Group of the Year by Law360, which recognized our strong capabilities in consumer fraud litigation, product liability litigation, defamation and disparagement litigation, antitrust litigation, and transactional counseling.

In addition to the legal services highlighted above, we also provide food, beverage, and agriculture clients with advice and counseling in connection with bankruptcy, real estate, data security, privacy, patent prosecution, restrictive covenants, securities litigation, and white collar criminal defense.
