Food and Agribusiness

Deploying approximately 400 lawyers across seven states and the District of Columbia, Stoel Rives LLP helps some of the largest food and dairy companies in the country achieve their business and litigation objectives.
We have worked for many years with agricultural and agribusiness concerns, including large production farms, vineyards, ranches, wineries, processing facilities and significant lenders and investors in the agricultural and agribusiness industries. Our lawyers supporting these industries have experience in regulatory and compliance issues, water issues, financing, real estate, natural resources, international trade and legislative affairs.
