But 3G is not the only outfit eyeing BigFood as well as SmallFood.
Regarding the latter, SmallFood usually provides innovation as well as unique brands. Old-line companies like Campbell Soup are moving toward healthy. They could accelerate that by buying up niche players in healthy eating. Read all about it in Fortune.
That possible M&A activity could mean big business opportunities for BigLaw.
In addition, there are the employment law legalities. Kraft's Oscar Meyer plant in Madison, Wisconsin, will be putting out the lights next March. 3G Capital didn't assess it as productive enough.
There is also the need for tax lawyers. Communities are offering complex tax incentives in their fight to save food processing facilities.
Of course, law firms of all sizes have long been in the foodborne disease practice. That category of business could grow as merged entities rationalize their production systems. Safety measures could fall through the cracks. Outdated equipment in an acquired food processing facility could result in major ligation for the new parent company - which, of course, represents a deeper pocket.
Law firms which want to be proactive about these prospects should read financial reviews of how the companies, public and private, are positioned. For example, security analysts predict 3G Capital eventually will hit a wall because its strength isn't innovation.
