(Chicago, IL) November 14, 2002 – Karen A. Weaver, a partner in the law firm of Weaver & Amin in Chicago, will be one of the featured speakers at the Third International Conference and Exhibition on Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods: From Laboratory to Real World and Marketplace, Monday, November 18, in San Diego, at the San Diego Marriott in Missin Valley. Weaver will discuss Functional Foods and GRAS Regulations: An FDA Perspective, during Session 2 at 1:30 p.m. in Room C.
Weaver’s presentation at Worldnutra will focus on how the Food and Drug Administration determines whether a product will be regulated as a drug or cosmetic, the science substantiating anti-aging claims and how to phrase claims that do not test the drug/cosmetic regulatory distinction. She will also address general labeling and reporting requirements.
In her practice, Weaver advises companies about FDA, FTC, USPS and customs regulatory compliance, advertising, and multi-leveling marketing matters. She represents clients before Federal and State administrative and judicial bodies, and devotes a portion of her practice to intellectual property litigation.
Weaver & Amin concentrates its practice in Food and Drug Administration, Federal Trade Commission, and related Federal and State regulatory compliance and litigation matters, contracts and business transactions, and intellectual property prosecution, maintenance, licensing, and litigation.
The firm's practice also includes the regulation of many consumer products such as cosmetics, medical devices, dietary supplements, food additives, organics, nutraceuticals, color additives, animal feeds, and biologics. A significant component of the practice involves new product labeling, clinical testing protocols, advertising, and legal and regulatory review of health claims and statements of nutritional support.
