We understand the business, government regulation, public relations, science and markets in the agriculture industry and advise clients on their business needs.  Our lawyers provide timely advice as the agriculture industry evolves. Lawyers keep pace as our clients operate in an ever-changing environment. We help clients assess market risk with legal risk. We stay on top of emerging issues of agri-finance, biotechnology, food safety, state and federal regulations and biofuels.
