Our Food and Beverage Legal Audit Program can help you root out threats to your business and livelihood, while making you more attractive to investors or buyers.

McLaughlinPC Legal Audit - McLaughlinPCMcLaughlin PC has spent years advising food and beverage companies on corporate governance, regulatory compliance, employment best practices and legal risk management strategies that allow companies to grow, attract investors, prepare to be acquired, and increase overall corporate value.

McLaughlin PC’s legal audit program is a flat fee based service that includes an analysis of corporate documents, contracts, policies, and procedures in the following areas:

  • Corporate organization
  • Intellectual property
  • Real property
  • Technology
  • Licensing and compliance
  • Labor and employment
  • Operations and transactions
  • Finance and tax
  • Litigation

Real or perceived risk in any of these areas can reduce the overall enterprise value of a food and beverage company, which can lead to lower valuations when raising equity and debt, increased due diligence requirements in transactions, more restrictive contractual covenants in deal documents, broader representations and warranties in agreements, and, in certain circumstances, can cause investors or purchasers to walk away from a deal altogether.

A legal audit in any of these areas can add tremendous value to your company if it makes deal due diligence easier and helps avoid litigation. Food and beverage companies in the audit program receive a discount on the follow-up recommended services. McLaughlin PC also offers outside general counsel arrangements which allow food and beverage companies to tap our legal expertise as needed for a monthly fixed fee.

If you would like to discuss the legal audit program or an outside general counsel arrangement, please contact Matthew McLaughlin: or 601-487-4550.
