Sectors

Food, Beverages and Agriculture


quotes We just really enjoy advising on it, it’s such a thriving sector in Ireland, there’s energy and optimism in it and you can sense that from the clients.

The food, beverage and agriculture sector is the jewel in Ireland’s Smart Economy. The agri-food and agri-business sector is Ireland’s largest indigenous industry.  Ireland export 85% of its food and seafood to more than 160 countries worldwide.  The beverages industry alone supports 92,000 jobs in Ireland.   The sector is fast growing and faces increasing challenges from regulation, complex consumer and competition law requirements, supply chain logistics, health and safety issues and environmental responsibilities.

At Philip Lee we have unrivalled experience in advising clients in the food, beverage and agriculture sector.  We understand the industry issues and we enjoy the area.  With the deregulation of milk quotas in 2015 and the opening up of an increased number of international markets to Irish food and beverage suppliers, the opportunities have never been greater.

We help our clients to thrive.  We advise on:

  • Trade marks, patents, designs, confidential information and recipes
  • Environmental and energy
  • Product and brand development
  • Regulatory compliance
  • EU competition and trade/customs law
  • Reputation management, product liability
  • Commercial contracts and data
  • Acquisitions and investments
  • Tax

We have the expertise and experience thus ensuring we deliver a practical and value added service to clients.
