Food, Beverage, and Alcohol
Conatus Counsel has found that many food and beverage businesses, including breweries, cideries, and distilleries, are based in passion and Forrest has worked with a number of such products and brands. Food and Beverage businesses, including alcohol, have traditional challenges as other businesses but also find themselves needing cost-effective real world solutions and forward thinking strategies in order to be able to grow and have sustainable success.
These businesses need someone aware of the regulatory and other business needs of such industries that can provide cost-effective services and solutions. Forrest enjoys the collaboration with founders and owners of such businesses.
Forrest Merithew assists food and beverage businesses and brands with entity formation and fundraising, securing locations and leases, contract negotiation and drafting, regulatory requirements, intellectual property including proprietary protection, branding and marketing, and trademarks and copyrights, product liability and manufacturing, and other general counsel matters.
