Beveridge & Diamond works with U.S. and international companies in the agriculture industry to identify, establish, and implement effective regulatory, commercial, and legislative strategies to achieve or exceed business objectives.
We have over 40 years of experience finding solutions that help companies get their products on the market and keep them there. We have a special focus on agriculture technology, having worked on these issues since the first federal biotechnology regulations were issued. We understand the agricultural technology industry inside and out from legal, scientific, and commercial perspectives.
Clients and Focus
We represent both large and small companies, as well as task forces of companies, that research, develop, manufacture, distribute, or use seeds, crops, trees, livestock, and pesticides. Our clients also include companies that manufacture equipment for the agriculture industry.
We use every tool available—including discussion, research, litigation, negotiations, mediation, and arbitration—to help our clients overcome regulatory and litigation issues that diminish their ability to sell their products. Over the years we have advised clients on:
- Health and environmental reviews
- Protection of research data rights
- Court actions to challenge government activities, defend against objections, and resolve commercial disputes
- Data requirements
- Federal, state, and international compliance issues
- Transactional support
- Enforcement actions
For each case, we take a nuanced look at the matters and carefully select one or more lawyers from our experienced legal team, in addition to non-legal scientific and technical experts, with the goal of providing long-term advice that continually enhances the client’s business and reputation.
