Troutman Pepper’s national team helps clients thrive as they confront the legal and policy challenges in this highly scrutinized and ever-evolving area of commerce. With nearly 100 years of collective experience in the U.S. tobacco and nicotine industry, our attorneys advise clients across the entire supply chain and in all product segments, including e-cigarettes and other electronic nicotine delivery systems, modern oral nicotine products, cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, and hookah tobacco.
Drawing from diverse legal backgrounds, including in-house experience, our multidisciplinary team of attorneys and non-attorney professionals provide unique insights and solutions for our clients’ federal, state, and local tobacco regulatory matters. We work with tobacco manufacturers, distributors, retailers, suppliers, and service providers in critical areas, helping to develop business strategies and navigate regulatory complexities.
We regularly handle litigation and administrative disputes involving federal and state government entities, including bet-the-company matters adverse to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), state attorneys general, and state taxing authorities.
Our team also collaborates seamlessly with our transactional attorneys to achieve the best possible outcomes on a variety of transactions, including the purchase and sale of tobacco businesses. We also regularly advise on commercial agreements, including manufacturer program agreements.
