Promotional products are also regulated by federal law. Among the agencies governing the marketing of different products are the Federal Trade Commission; the U.S. Department of Justice; the U.S. Postal Service; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and the Food and Drug Administration. Our lawyers are knowledgeable about the various federal laws relevant to promotions, advertising and marketing.
