Erin is an experienced commercial attorney who joined Rock Hutchinson as a partner in 2016. She offers a broad range of services to clients of all sizes, but focuses her practice on working with the in-house law departments of well established food and consumer good organizations.

Erin started her practice in the commercial litigation group at Oppenheimer Wolff & Donnelly LLP (now Fox Rothschild LLP). She left private practice to join General Mills where she served as a member of its business unit leadership teams and handled a wide range of legal matters.

Erin's experiences include trade and price counseling, litigation oversight, food law and labeling, issues management, M&A planning and integration, marketing and advertising review, negotiating and drafting supply and sale-side contracts, brokerage agreements, distribution agreements, sweepstakes, joint development agreements, and research agreements. She also offers the full array of antitrust compliance training.

Erin's current practice is mostly comprised of long-term roles where she provides ongoing counseling to her clients' business teams and/or legal departments. She also works, on a more integrated basis, with companies that have significant temporary needs resulting from retirement, department reorganizations or the integration of a major acquisition.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
