Perkins Coie is pleased to announce the launch of our sixth annual Food Litigation Year in Review. In recognition of the firm’s practice expansion, this year-in-review report has been broadened to the Food & Consumer Packaged Goods Litigation Year in Review 2021. Accompanying the 2021 report are infographics that highlight key litigation outcomes, filing data, and industry trends. As always, the report offers a summary of the past year’s key litigation outcomes, regulatory developments, and filing data using metrics from our proprietary database, developed by our food and consumer packaged goods (CPG) litigation team. in order to track and understand trends in this growing area.
More new class action lawsuits were filed against the food and beverage industry—325 cases—than in any other year of the last decade. And, as plaintiffs’ lawyers have set their sights on other products in the CPG space, Perkins Coie has continued to systematically track these cases as well.
Perkins Coie has been a leader in defending food and CPG litigation cases, securing favorable, precedent-setting results for its clients.
