GOED to Host Litigation Risk Webinar with Amin Talati Wasserman

GOED, the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s, will co-present a webinar (June 8, 1 pm US EDT) with industry law firm Amin Talati Wasserman titled, “Omega-3 Litigation Risks, Trends and Strategies.” The presentation will focus on current legal challenges faced by the omega-3 industry in the US, from consumer class actions to Proposition 65 trends. Speakers include Matthew Orr and William Cole — veteran industry litigators with extensive experience in consumer class actions and other legal issues affecting the food, beverage, dietary supplement and cosmetic industries.

During the webinar, Orr and Cole will make sense of a recent spike in demand letters on producers and marketers in the omega-3 space. In addition to learning how to avoid becoming a target in the first place, they will explain how to make sense of these letters and other challenges by identifying potential risks and choosing the right mitigation tactics. They will also highlight current and emerging trends in complex consumer litigation. Attendees will learn what to do if they receive a demand letter, assessing its risk in the context of a typical consumer class action lawsuit.

This webinar is a must-attend for anyone in the omega-3 industry looking to stay up-to-date on the latest legal developments and best practices in our category. Registration is complimentary for employees of GOED member companies. Registration for non-members is US$199.

Attendees can register here.
