Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP

Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP's New York-based false advertising practice counts Eli Lilly, Blue Buffalo Company and The Hershey Company among its clients. Steven Zalesin led a team which successfully defended Coca-Cola in a putative class action where plaintiffs argued the false use of the term 'diet' in Diet Coke, as no-calorie soft drinks purportedly do not assist with weight loss or weight management. Other work includes representing Johnson & Johnson in Lanham Act litigation brought by Andover Healthcare alleging products were inaccurately labeled as not made with natural rubber latex, because they contained latex proteins. Changes to the team include the departure of Travis Tu to an in-house role at the Center for Reproductive Rights.
