Ron Levine was quoted in the Bloomberg BNA Product Safety & Liability Reporter article "Is Food the Next Frontier For Mandatory Arbitration?" In the article, which analyzes the viability of mandatory arbitration in the food and beverage industry, Ron commented that companies should look at the pros and cons of various types of dispute resolution, including arbitration. But, he said, "Those methods will only proceed, and succeed, if the companies can make the case that the alternatives provide real relief to consumers with legitimate claims, and the methods are not being set up to shield the companies from any and all liability, legitimate or not."
