Services

Since 1993, the Marler Clark attorneys have represented thousands of clients in litigation against restaurants and food companies whose food was identified as the source of illness. Since that time, the law firm has represented victims of nearly every E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria, or other foodborne illness outbreak across the country.

Marler Clark is the nation’s leading law firm representing victims of foodborne illnesses such as E. coli, Salmonella, and Listeria.

The Marler Clark attorneys focus solely on representing victims of foodborne illness outbreaks, representing victims of E. coli, Hepatitis A, Campylobacter, Listeria, Salmonella, and Shigella outbreaks nationwide.  Marler Clark has litigated against huge corporations including Cargill, Dole, Wal-Mart, Wendy’s, McDonald’s, Nestle, and Yum! Brands on behalf of clients injured in foodborne illness outbreaks traced back to the companies’ food products, winning over $600 million in settlements for their clients.

Marler Clark attorneys travel widely to speak to environmental health and industry groups, university students, and food safety conference audiences, often on the topics of the intersection of public health and the law and preventing foodborne illness.

The firm advocates for safer food by working with clients to tell their stories; Bill Marler and several of the firm’s clients have testified before Congress about illnesses from unsafe food.  Along with Food Poison Journal, Marler Clark publishes Food Safety News, Real Raw Milk Facts, and the Foodborne Illness Outbreak Database.
