Thompson Coburn has been a key player in the food and agriculture industry for decades. Our lawyers have been the legal engine behind some of the most noteworthy food-related business transactions and litigation nationwide, including a major U.S. Supreme Court victory in 2013 for an agribusiness client regarding its patented seeds. We are deeply familiar with nearly every angle of the industry – from seed production, land matters, and finance to crop production, transportation, food processing, marketing and labeling claims and more.
Covering the “Food Fight,” the blog will share timely insights into litigation trends, emerging arguments, and challenges facing the food and agriculture industries. The blog will also cover decisions regarding expert witnesses in food and agriculture litigation and relevant scientific articles.
We will also be reporting on federal and state legislative developments and key regulatory updates from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and other agencies that govern the food and agriculture industries.
So stay tuned as we cover the fight.
