Foscolo & Handel PLLC, The Food Law Firm

It is with pride that I cross-post this announcement from LL.M. alumnus, Jason Foscolo, as posted on The Food Law Firm Blog, dated February 24, 2014 - 
It is with great pride that I publicly announce the launch of Foscolo & Handel PLLC, a new law practice dedicated to servicing the legal needs of farmers and food entrepreneurs. Earlier this year, Lauren Handel and I officially teamed up to combine our skills, experience, and resources for the benefit of our rapidly growing base of clients. Foscolo & Handel PLLC can now offer the community of food entrepreneurs more services, such as litigation, and with greater flexibility and availability than ever before.
I am particularly excited to be working alongside an attorney of Lauren’s caliber. Her incredible dedication to the burgeoning field of food law is truly inspirational. After 10 years at a prestigious “BigLaw” firm in New York and Washington, D.C., she chose to reorient her professional life to help support the kinds of clients that matter to her personally, those in the food industry. Her professionalism, commitment to her new clients, and her remarkable passion for food law inspire me to be a better attorney every day that we work together. The knowledge and experience she brings to this partnership will prove to be invaluable assets to our clients. 
I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank our clients and colleagues, whose support and trust in our unique legal expertise has sustained the rapid growth of this firm since its founding in 2011. Their continuing commitment to our firm is a testament to the usefulness of food law to their businesses.
Foscolo & Handel PLLC, the full service, general practice Food Law Firm, is now officially open for business.
Jason and Lauren are two sharp attorneys, connected-to and passionate-about food and agriculture. They are leading the way for the legal profession by finding better ways to serve clients -  by first really understanding their client's needs and believing in the work that they do.

As food law & policy grows as a legal discipline, as businesses realize that they need agricultural and food law attorneys on their side -  the demand for food law attorneys will rise.  I'd bet the store that this Food Law Firm is going to be very successful, particularly in the way that really matters -  in serving clients with the best representation available.  And, by doing so, our food system gets better, one business at a time.
