Role in Agribusiness
Helping Clients in a Growing and Diverse Industry
Ice Miller understands and tailors its services to the unique needs of each segment of the agriculture, food and alternative energy industries. Our attorneys also know that businesses may require different legal services depending on their size, strategic focus, customer base and geographic reach.
Food and agricultural innovators, like any start-up business, must acquire necessary capital, establish an appropriate business structure and protect their technology and intellectual property. Ice Miller works closely with these companies to provide STRUCTURAL AND EARLY NEEDS ASSISTANCE which can include counsel on corporate, contracts, licensing, labor/employee benefits, financing, intellectual property and tax matters, as well as policy and regulatory monitoring and industry networking.
Mid-sized food and agricultural companies are focused exclusively on their markets – regional, national and even international – and future growth. Ice Miller helps these businesses manage their risks and seek out growth opportunities by providing FULL SERVICE COUNSEL. We provide corporate (transactions, mergers and acquisitions, contracts, licensing), labor/employee benefits, municipal finance, intellectual property, litigation, risk management, succession planning, tax, environmental regulatory, public affairs (state and federal) and industry networking assistance.
Large, multinational food and agricultural firms need TARGETED ASSISTANCE from law firms to support their own internal counsel. Ice Miller frequently supports the unique strategic needs of these major agribusiness firms in the areas of corporate and merger and acquisition transactions, municipal finance, risk management, litigation, public and government affairs, among others.
