Ali on the Run Show Episode 349: On the Job with Victoria Asikis, Food Lawyer

“It’s definitely not like Suits. It’s way more like The Office.”

For Victoria Asikis, grocery shopping is the best. As a lawyer working in regulatory compliance for food and beverage products, strolling the aisles is basically doing market research. And on this episode, we learn what, exactly, a food lawyer does. (It’s pretty fascinating stuff!) Victoria lives in Ottawa, Ontario, where she is a part of the advertising and product regulatory group at Gowling WLG, a large multinational law firm. She spends her days making sure that every word, statement, or claim on a food, beverage, or natural beauty product (like your favorite cereal box, bag of granola, or chemical-free face wash) is true and accurate. She is also the Communications Director for the Hellenic Canadian Lawyers’ Association. And turns out, it’s really cool work! Victoria is so passionate about what she does — and you’ll be able to tell within the first two minutes of this conversation!
