Lori’s far-ranging class action and complex litigation experience on both sides of the “v” provides clients with the savvy and skill needed to navigate an oftentimes lengthy and challenging process deftly. Lori specializes in representing victims of price-fixing cartels in antitrust opt-out litigation. On the defense side, she focuses her practice on defending food and beverage companies and other consumer product organizations in false advertising and deceptive labeling class action litigation. A founder of the Food Court Blog, Lori’s foresight and analysis help her food and beverage and antitrust clients understand complex legal issues and prepare for the unexpected.
Lori’s commercial litigation practice also includes an impressive track record of obtaining successful results for clients spanning the technology, real estate, finance, auto, and entertainment and sports industries in a broad range of business disputes, including corporate governance, defamation, product liability, and securities.
I read, write, and speak extensively on issues affecting the food and beverage sector. Perceived ambiguities in regulatory guidance give rise to claims that product packaging has crossed the line from creative marketing to false advertising. I prepare my clients for this reality by being their “eyes and ears” in industry circles, sharing data and research, and mitigating exposure by keeping them up-to-date on legal trends. I also closely track antitrust and consumer protection issues that impact the food and beverage industry. This allows me to stay ahead of the curve and provide my clients with every possible advantage during the course of antitrust litigation.
