We understand that each client is different, particularly in the Agriculture sector, with their own unique needs and objectives. As a result, we tailor our offering around our clients to ensure we meet their goals by taking into account a variety of factors, such as regional footprint, infrastructure, opportunities, challenges and goals. We stay abreast of the market and industry regulations, affording us the ability to take a proactive stance and to seize opportunities as they arise, whether anticipated and otherwise.

Our attorneys working with the Agriculture industry represent the leading wholesaler and distributors of produce in the New York Hunts Point Terminal Market, as well as a wide range of other businesses in the industry including farmers, specialty food companies, supermarkets, manufacturers, retailers and suppliers, giving them the advice and guidance they need to navigate the legal and regulatory landscape of a dynamic and often changing industry. We assist our agricultural clients in developing, maintaining and protecting their human capital and business processes with a focus on minimizing potential liability under a myriad of governmental regulations as well as industry specific laws covering commodities such as the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA).
