Emily K. Strunk


Emily Strunk focuses her practice on regulatory matters and consumer protection issues, primarily as they relate to products regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Emily works with clients in the food, dietary supplement, medical device, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics industries to develop and implement strategies for regulatory approvals and clearances, compliance and enforcement actions, crisis management, rulemaking, and public policy issues.

Emily's experience also encompasses matters before the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), National Advertising Division, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Consumer Product Safety Commission, Customs and Border Protection, and Environmental Protection Agency. As a result, she has a keen insight into agency thinking when complex situations or applications to new technologies reveal gaps or gray areas in the law.

Prior to practicing law, Emily worked in marketing, public relations, and fundraising, which allows her to better understand and account for business goals in regulatory strategies. With this perspective informing her legal practice, Emily has developed a niche in the area of labeling and claims and the joint jurisdiction of the FDA and the FTC.
