STEVENS FINALFOOD INDUSTRY COUNSEL, LLC is the only law firm in the nation that represents only food industry clients – exclusively.  For over 15 years, the founding member of FIC, Shawn K. Stevens,  has dedicated his practice to representing the food industry.

During this period, he has worked globally with a vast array of food industry clients (including the world’s largest food processors, national restaurant chains, and food distributors and grocers) helping them protect their brand by proactively reducing their food safety exposure, complying with complex food safety regulations, coordinating crisis management and recall efforts, and defending high-profile foodborne illness and quality claims.

Mr. Stevens also serves as the only Food Safety and Quality mediator in the nation, helping parties who have food safety or quality disagreements (whether in advance of or during litigation) resolve their disputes.

In addition to managing the firm’s mediation and dispute resolution practice, Mr. Stevens also speaks and writes regularly to national audiences on a wide variety of emerging scientific, regulatory and legal food safety trends.  He is also a regular contributor to Meatingplace, the National Provisioner, and Food Quality and Safety Magazine.
