Pooja Nair Quoted in Axios, "Fast-food chains under fire for false advertising claims"
Pooja Nair, Partner, and Chair of the Food, Beverage & Hospitality practice group was quoted in Axios in an article titled, "Fast-food chains under fire for false advertising claims".
"For every lawsuit that is filed, there are dozens of demand letters and cases that are settled, Pooja Nair, a partner with the California-based law firm Ervin Cohen and Jessup, told Axios".
- "The Burger King case making it this far stage means more cases will come, Nair said".
"Yes, but:Nair, who represents food and beverage companies, said the rise in lawsuits isn't because of "an increased surge of interest from plaintiffs who are independently choosing to file lawsuits."
- "It's that these firms that have experience in this field are seeing some success, increasing their resources and filing more lawsuits," Nair said".
- "Nair argues that plaintiffs' lawyers are the only people who benefit from these cases. When a settlement is reached, consumers often get a small amount that the majority of eligible people don't claim."
- "It's just a really overly litigated area and there's no benefits to consumers," Nair said. "The only thing that happens is products get more expensive."
