Dietary Supplement Law and Policy

Washington D.C. Attorneys and Advisors Offering Advocacy and Guidance Before Congress, the FDA, and other Agencies

OFW Law represents members of the dietary supplement industry and, by employing both conventional and creative means, helps to protect and advance their legal, regulatory, competitive, and other business interests.

Our attorneys and Senior Policy Advisors counsel clients on regulatory compliance, enforcement risk, and corrective action; draft notifications, petitions, and other voluntary or mandatory submissions; file complaints against competitors; and lobby Congress. We advocate on behalf of our dietary supplement clients before federal agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), as well as the courts and the National Advertising Division (NAD) of the Council of Better Business Bureaus.

We are familiar with the key legislative officials on Capitol Hill and regulatory officials within the federal agencies (e.g., the Office of Nutrition, Labeling and Dietary Supplements within FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, and the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection), as well as with individuals at pertinent trade associations (e.g., Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), Natural Products Association (NPA), American Herbal Products Association (AHPA)).

Whether an established purveyor or an entrepreneur in the dietary supplement field, the experience and knowledge our professionals offer are unique. We provide timely, effective, and cost-efficient legal advice and services.
