Internet Services

As a "retired" lawyer with 34 years experience, I offer legal consultation services internationally
and may require assistance of local counsel.


WEB SITE REVIEW

I offer comprehensive review of web sites for compliance with FTC, FDA, EU and other legal requirements, as well as compliance with the changing customs in privacy and information control standards. My hourly fee for internet services is noted below and is discounted from standard commercial rates since working over the internet can be more efficient and effective than older methods of communication. This rate applies to internet review and advice services only; full representation and other legal service fees subject to negotiation.  Costs and expenses in addition.

ALL SERVICES SUBJECT TO STANDARD RETAINER TERMS

Credentials & Articles

Disclaimers
All rights reserved -- UCC 1-207.

If you want your web site reviewed, please contact me by email,
ralph.fucetola@usa.net with your URL
(please put "Site Review" in the subject line).
I will then take a look and reply to your email with an estimate
of cost to review and analyze the site.
Fee Structure

Upon receipt of payment, I will:

Review and analyze the site with specific recommendations, based upon my Private and Confidential listing of allowed and disallowed nutrient claims;

Recommend appropriate Privacy and Disclaimer language for the site, and

Provide a formal Legal Opinion Letter regarding your allowed claims; reliance on formal Legal Advice can be a defense regarding certain claims.

The average web site review can take about five hours, excluding the Opinion Letter.

Notices, SOPs, AER and Other Services

I am also available to prepared required FDA notices, review claims, labels, hang tags and sales literature for both FDA and FTC compliance. For fee estimates for additional services, please email me with your requests.

The Vitaminlawyer.com Consultancy is ready to file your Notices!  New Dietary Ingredient Pre Market Notices, Structure and Function Claims Notices, etc.

AER - adverse event reporting - is coming to the vitamin industry.  I can help!

ALL NUTRIENT PURVEYORS MUST FILE THEIR STRUCTURE & FUNCTION CLAIM NOTICES

Privacy - Disclaimer - Options format can be tailored to your site's needs, www.siteusestatement.com

Legally protect your assets from lawsuits and liabilities, assetprotect.html.

Every nutrient company or alternative clinic needs SOPs - standard operating procedures that meet FDA standards.  I have excellent formats for such needs, covering issues like:

            A.  Refund, Delivery & Returns Policies
            B.  Standard Disclaimers; Site Use Statement
            C.  Standard Waivers: Model / Testimonial
            D.  Email Privacy Policy
            E.  Document Retention Policy
            F.  Quality Control Procedures - Standards, Complaints and Policy Coordination
            G.  Order Processing Procedure
            H.  Bookkeeping and Account Management
            I.   Order Record Keeping and Retrieval; AER Reporting

COMPANY FORMATION

If you are selling nutrients, you need to consider forming a corporation or limited liability company for your business activities. One of the easiest ways to do this is to enlist the help of the Delaware company that probably does more of this work than any other company. I've used The Company Corporation for years and find them very helpful.

Here is a link to their site. To form a Limited Company, click here and follow their instructions: The Company Formation Site. If you need to reach the Company Corporation by phone, their number is 1-888-340-7239 and please give them my Affiliate Number, 1322. There are various ideas about Asset Protection that you may also want to consider. This Company Formation information and link are offered as public services and are not intended to create a lawyer/client relationship.

International Services

The United States supplement market is the largest supplement market worldwide. Both importing into the States and exporting from them require special legal considerations. I have had experience working with importing and exporting from jurisdictions such as Australia, Korea, Indonesia and the European Union's new Food Suplement Directive. For fee estimates for international services, please email me with your requests. My Credentials, vitbiog.html.
