K&L Gates has decades of experience working with leading global food, beverage, and agriculture companies to assist them to stay ahead of the numerous challenges they face daily.

The agribusiness, food and beverage sector is increasingly global, and so are we. With offices in Europe, the Middle East, the United States, Latin America, Australia, and Asia, our team represents growers, producers, processors, suppliers, AgTech companies, and lenders and investors in key markets worldwide. The scope of our international reach allows us to do cross-border consultation, litigations, and transactions, allowing clients a single point of contact when dealing with laws and regulations across multiple jurisdictions.

With a focus on the entire agricultural supply and food processing chain, our integrated cross-practice and cross-office group serves clients in a variety of subject matters—corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, licensing, finance, real estate, land use, water law, environmental law, intellectual property, commodities, antitrust, regulatory issues, dispute resolution, employment and labor law, commercial contracts, and general litigation. Our team includes lawyers who have scientific, technical, regulatory, and operational backgrounds working in the agriculture and food sectors. Further, our understanding of public policy and regulations, coupled with governmental experience, gives our clients an important edge in dealing with the various regulatory agencies that impact the industry.

Our combination of regulatory insight, practical business understanding, global reach, and an industry-focused approach built over many years of dedicated service to the agribusiness and food sector enables us to assist food and agricultural companies, both large and small, to innovate, expand, and meet their strategic business goals.
