Hyman, Phelps & McNamara, P.C. (“HP&M”) is pleased to announce that Karin Moore has become its newest Director. Drawing on her years of experience as a former general counsel to leading trade associations, Karin is an industry expert and thought leader in the areas of food and beverage, personal care products, household products and beverage alcohol who can anticipate issues, aid in client innovation and transformation, and mitigate the multitude of risks to those clients.
As a Director at HP&M, Karin will provide strategic regulatory and policy advice on ingredients and finished products, and compliance with labeling and advertising requirements. She will help clients interpret the implementation of new requirements, such as those arising from the Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard, the Food Safety Modernization Act, Prop 65 and other state ingredient labeling mandates. She will also work at the intersection of FDA regulated products and antitrust, drawing on her expertise in both areas.
Prior to joining HP&M, Ms. Moore was General Counsel of the Grocery Manufacturers Association (now Consumer Brands Association), and Co-General Counsel of the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America. Before that, she practiced antitrust law as Counsel at O’Melveny & Myers LLP where she focused on antitrust litigation, civil and criminal investigations, and federal and state class action defense. She previously held a variety of positions with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) Bureau of Competition, including Counsel to the Director and staff attorney. She earned her J.D., from George Mason University School of Law and her B.A. from Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
“During my time at Grocery Manufacturers Association, I worked with so many wonderful people and companies in the CPG industry, and I am excited to continue to support them at HP&M. The depth and breadth of technical expertise and industry knowledge that HP&M offers will allow me to continue to work with an industry I love, and to further broaden my own expertise,” said Ms. Moore.
