Unparalleled Experience in the Field of Dietary Supplements Law

Criminal lawyers fighting for the rights of the dietary supplement industry in an ever-changing world

Few industries change more rapidly than the sports nutrition segment of the dietary supplement industry. Innovation and discovery occur daily, and serious athletes and bodybuilders hang onto every technological development the industry puts forward in order to ensure they are maximizing their competitive edge.

The flipside of technological advancement is government regulation. Several laws at the federal and state levels are intended to protect citizens from potentially harmful nutritional supplements. The end result is a very fine balancing act performed by sports nutrition developers and their customers every day, to maximize performance while ensuring government compliance.

At Collins Gann McCloskey & Barry PLLC, our lawyers in Nassau County, New York and Los Angeles, California understand this area of legal practice as well as any practicing attorney in the country. We offer our clients everything from general business advice to legal counsel regarding regulatory compliance to avoid criminal liability. But when supplement companies find themselves under government investigation for violating sections of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, our firm has the experience needed. Rick Collins and his team have handled cases involving misbranded or adulterated dietary supplement products in cases from coast to coast. Let us help you.

Helping sports nutrition companies ensure final rules compliance

The landscape of sports nutrition legal regulation changes frequently. Failure to keep abreast of changes in legislation and the issuance of final rules regarding ingredients that are legally importable, supplements you are allowed to sell, and advertising claims you can legally make can mean the difference between commercial viability and an endless sea of red tape and litigation.

The sports nutrition lawyers at Collins Gann McCloskey & Barry PLLC understand the rules and regulations that apply and constantly update our knowledge about regulation of the American sports nutrition industry.

Protecting the intellectual property of our sports nutrition clients

Intellectual property infringement is always on the minds of sports nutrition company executives. Any company that brings a new or innovative product to market must take every possible precaution to safeguard its own intellectual property while being sure not to infringe on the intellectual property rights protected by their competitors’ copyrights, patents and trademarks.

At Collins Gann McCloskey & Barry PLLC, we help ensure our clients do not run afoul of intellectual property laws, and that their own patents and products are kept safe from similar violations by other parties.
