Manufacturing & Distribution

We counsel manufacturing and distribution clients on a broad array of matters that are essential to their operations. Our legal services include structuring and negotiating co-packing, supply chain agreements, exclusive distribution agreements, sponsorship and other customer agreements, and terms and conditions of sale, as well as handling the complex set of practical, legal, and regulatory considerations applicable to contract manufacturing and exclusive distribution of iconic brands.

FDA & Product Labeling

Bradley attorneys help clients navigate Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations in an environment where even unintentional actions can create exposure to liability. We help companies comply with the Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act (FD&C) and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FP&L) and ensure that their packaged goods meet labeling standards. We also work with clients on recalls and defending against administrative, civil, and criminal enforcement actions.

Restaurant & Food Service

The restaurant industry is a challenging environment, and our lawyers have the experience and track record to help clients navigate its complexities and legal requirements. Bradley counsels both individual restaurants and franchise groups on restaurant-specific laws and regulations—such as alcohol service permits—as well as general corporate needs, including vendor agreements, finance and tax, labor and employment, and real estate. We also work with restaurant clients interested in growing through franchising, as well as clients with established franchise systems.
