Bringing an Insider’s Perspective of the Produce Industry
Meuers Law Firm, P.L. was founded in 1989 by Lawrence H. Meuers, a veteran of the produce industry. For four generations, Larry’s extended family has owned and operated numerous produce companies. The companies founded by his mother and father, and now run by his brother, are still in operation and running strong after nearly 50 years!
A Family Rooted in the Produce Industry
Larry’s understanding of the produce industry was passed down to him through generations of the DeLisi and Piazza families, who immigrated from Termini Imerese, Sicily, to Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. To read more about his family’s history in the produce industry, see below.
Larry grew up in the produce industry and has worked in all facets of it. He began by sweeping floors, sorting produce, loading and unloading trucks, picking up produce from farms and delivering it to grocery stores, supervising packing plants and handling all the various management duties that came with running his family’s produce business. Recognizing the need for legal services dedicated specifically to the produce industry, Larry used his family background and legal education to open one of the first law firms of its kind.
