Agricultural Law

Agricultural law encompasses local, state and federal regulations that apply to livestock, crop, and food production.

We represent farmers, ranchers, agricultural cooperatives, input suppliers, manufacturers, processors, lenders and other agricultural businesses. Many of our attorneys grew up in farm families or rural communities and understand all aspects of agriculture. Our active involvement in farming keeps us keenly aware of modern farm practices and challenges, while our cumulative personal and professional experiences allow us to help agricultural clients face challenges and achieve success. We appreciate how hard our agricultural clients work and strive to be a valued partner in their businesses and operations.
