Produce Business Advisers and Attorneys
Guiding Produce Businesses Toward Success
Producers and distributors of fresh fruits and vegetables that choose Meuers Law Firm to meet their legal needs or to work alongside their own in-house counsel benefit from decades of experience.
We understand the produce industry and how produce businesses operate. This understanding runs four generations deep. Our founding attorney, Lawrence H. Meuers, is a produce industry veteran who has done everything from working on the packing line and selling produce to running his family’s produce business. Our legal knowledge also runs deep, as we were among the first law firms in the country to devote its practice exclusively to produce law and the produce industry.
Proactive Representation and Problem Avoidance
We pride ourselves on proactive representation. We believe that the one thing better than a positive resolution to a problem is not having the problem in the first place. We have the insight to see problems coming and assist our clients in avoiding them early, saving time and money. Our unique combination of produce industry experience and legal knowledge positions us to provide advice and guidance to help our clients achieve their goals.
Our Counseling Services for Produce Companies
Produce companies turn to our lawyers for assistance with every aspect of their day-to-day business. We draft, review and negotiate contracts and documentation. When entering any deal, we assess the strengths and weaknesses of the agreement and clearly outline potential risks. We counsel clients on PACA regulations, as well as other non industry-specific regulations, including those related to food safety, importing produce and labeling. We also address all issues related to the transportation of produce.
The journey produce makes from field to fork can be a long and complex one. We assist produce businesses every step of the way to make certain it is a successful one as well.
