Keller and Heckman offers global food and drug services to its clients. Our comprehensive and extensive food and drug practice is one of the largest in the world. We promote, protect, and defend products made by the spectrum of industries regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the European Commission and Member States authorities in the European Union (EU) and similar authorities throughout the world. The products we help get to market include foods, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, veterinary products, dietary supplements, and cosmetics. In addition, we have a very comprehensive practice in the regulation of packaging materials for food, drugs, and cosmetics and other food-contact articles. We represent clients in addressing all issues relating to these products, including the suitability of their composition, inspection of manufacturing facilities, labeling and advertising, recall procedures, quality assurance programs, and appropriate responses to consumer complaints and tampering incidents. We also vigorously defend our clients when threatened by unwarranted action by competitors or regulatory authorities. We also have substantial experience conducting "due diligence" audits of marketed products, labeling, advertising claims, and manufacturing operations, both for the clients' internal control purposes and as part of product line or corporate acquisitions.
