About Our Organization: Richman Law & Policy (RLP) is a collective of lawyers and advocates specializing in socially conscious impact litigation and was founded on the idea that what cannot be achieved by way of legislation can sometimes be achieved by way of litigation.
The firm focuses on public-interest class actions, non-profit representation, and civil rights litigation.
We dedicate ourselves to serving the greater good by holding large corporations accountable for actions that can harm people, animals, and the environment. The driving force behind our public-interest practice is creating innovative and effective ways to influence public policy and the marketplace. Much of the work we do aims to rectify the inadequacies in the current regulatory environment that negatively impact public health, transparency and safety in the food system, animal welfare, and corporate marketing and labeling practices. We work closely with consumers and leading non-profit organizations.
