Ron Levine comments on litigation trends affecting the food and beverage industry were covered in the Reuters Legal article, “Food Companies Confront Spike in Consumer Fraud Lawsuits.” In the article, Mr. Levine noted that the recent wave of litigation against the food and beverage industry has created a fear among industry leaders that they are being targeted by plaintiffs’ lawyers in the same way tobacco companies were in previous decades. Mr. Levine’s comments were made shortly after he served as Co-Chair of Perrin's Food and Beverage Conference, where he moderated a panel on "The Evolution of Consumer Fraud Class Actions Against the Food Industry."
