Proactive, Efficient Service
We recognize that risk management is instrumental to protect and grow businesses in the agribusiness industry – especially given challenging economic conditions. Thus, we not only provide legal solutions to problems when they arise, but more importantly implement strategies to avoid disputes before they occur. We regularly advise our agribusiness clients on proactive and creative measures to avoid disputes and investigations, limit liability exposure, maximize opportunity for success, and minimize attorney fees.

When disputes do arise, however, our team of highly skilled litigators achieves favorable and quantifiable results for agribusiness clients of all sizes – from national operations to local outfits. We have extensive experience litigating and trying agribusiness cases in federal and state courts as well as before dispute review boards and arbitration tribunals throughout the nation. We also represent clients in proceedings before the Environmental Protection Agency and state equivalents throughout the company.
