The law relating to Food and Consumer Goods is International Law. It is one of the most EU-harmonised fields of law. In order to foresee future developments at an early stage and possibly influence them, a “direct line” to the European institutions is, therefore, indispensable. The successful legal shaping of global trade flows requires a worldwide network of well attuned working relationships with colleagues having a correspondingly high degree of specialisation. For this purpose, KWG Rechtsanwälte founded the worldwide network Food Lawyers Network Worldwide (FLN) at the beginning of the 2000s.
