General counsel. Food focused.

A law firm for food businesses and food systems changemakers.


We care about food a lot.

For us and our clients, food is about health, happiness, and care for people and the earth.

Food is also serious business. It is heavily regulated, potentially deadly, and super competitive. For good food businesses to survive and prosper, they need lawyers who can help them comply with the law, manage risks, and protect their interests.

Our experience and in-depth knowledge of the law and our clients’ business make Handel Food Law uniquely qualified to advise food and farming enterprises. Clients choose us not only because we do excellent work, but also because they trust our judgment and know that we care about their success.

Who We Serve

We exclusively work with businesses that produce and market food, firms that provide support services to the food and farming industry, and organizations working to improve food systems. Our clients represent all parts of the supply chain from farm to table, including producers, distributors, importers, retailers, and restaurants. Our clients make food with care — for quality, for people, and for the environment. They choose us because we share their values.

What We Do

We help our clients minimize and avoid risks, protect their interests, and grow their businesses. Whether we are helping a client to comply with regulations, establish a key relationship with a contract, or secure intellectual property rights, we bring our deep understanding and appreciation of food business to bear in everything we do.
