Food & Agriculture Industry Team
Faegre Baker Daniels lawyers represents many of the world’s leading food and agriculture companies, with more than 100 attorneys dedicated to serving them. Through our team, clients have a single source for comprehensive domestic and international representation from lawyers who understand — and have specific knowledge — in core areas important to these industries.
We Realize the Complexity of These Industries
The field-to-food and field-to-fuel cycles are complicated. We understand the science, economics, markets, government regulation, and public relations aspects of these cycles, and we address the full range of business needs:
- We defend our clients’ products, business models, and service teams around the world
- We work with our clients in their domestic and international acquisitions and joint ventures
- We protect research and development and product brands in the United States, Europe and Asia
We Keep Pace With Our Clients’ Evolving Business Needs
Our clients operate in an environment where opportunity and risk must be continually assessed and balanced. With that in mind, our lawyers make it their business to understand the rapidly evolving areas of seed biotechnology and crop protection. We stay abreast of issues in food safety, environmental regulation and the expanding biofuels market. Our lawyers also understand the ever-changing business side of the industry—applying knowledge of commodity markets, production chain issues, global workforce needs and industry competition to assist clients in a variety of matters. To that end, we are participating members of CropLife America, American Meat Institute, American Seed Trade Association, National Grain & Feed Association, Agricultural Retailers Association, International Dairy Foods Association, and International Foodservice Manufacturers Association.
