Danielle M. DeFilippis, a Member of law firm Norris McLaughlin, P.A., and Co-Chair of its Intellectual Property Law Practice Group, will present “Food Law Basics” for the Hudson Kitchen’s “Food Business Bootcamp,” 11:30 a.m. – noon, Saturday, February 22.
“This is a great opportunity for anyone ready to turn their passion into a profitable business. Being a part of a community centered around a commercial kitchen like Hudson Kitchen is a recipe for success,” said DeFilippis.
DeFilippis will address general legal considerations, such as the responsibility of food business owners to know federal, state, and local laws; advertising considerations; and intellectual property. Other discussion topics include goal setting, pricing and menu planning, marketing trends, and food business requirements and operations.
The full-day workshop, 8:45 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at the Hudson Kitchen in Kearny, also offers the opportunity to tour the commercial kitchen and a handbook for participants to take home. For more information and to register, visit thehudsonkitchen.com.
DeFilippis focuses her practice on intellectual property, contracts, and litigation. Her passion for food and beverage brands began at a young age, as she watched her father service various food brands through his work for a sales and marketing company. As the products came through her household, DeFilippis learned about marketing and branding from a retail and manufacturing perspective. Her appetite grew, and she now enjoys working with emerging and established food and beverage companies on brand development, clearance, counseling through the various stages of growth, and when the need arises, prosecuting and defending litigation.
