The agricultural industry faces continually evolving market conditions and the need to maintain businesses in the face of increasing cost structures, regulatory intrusion, and global competition.
We offer clients a unified, one-stop solution to all their legal needs. We feature a strong regulatory practice, working closely with teams in business, tax, financial services, real estate, environmental, land use, intellectual property, employment, labor, government relations and litigation. We also work closely with local counsel who may be handling a company’s daily operational needs when the company is confronted with large or specialized issues.
Our lawyers combine legal insight, industry experience and practical business sense to meet the needs of local and national agribusinesses. Because many of our lawyers are also scientists and engineers, we are ideally equipped to assist when legal matters interact with the scientific and technical issues that are common to modern agribusiness. We are well-equipped to help clients anticipate issues and work proactively to head off problems before they arise.
We work with a broad range of clients, including agricultural companies, vineyards, dairies, food processors, agricultural trade associations, equipment manufacturers, research institutions, local farmers and ranchers, and institutional and corporate producers.
Whatever the issue, our commitment is to provide a customized legal approach designed around each client’s specific needs and goals.
