Public Affairs - Agricultural Policy and Regulatory Matters

Food and agricultural businesses struggle today to stay abreast of the changing legislative and regulatory actions being implemented at the local, state and federal level.

Ice Miller's public affairs professionals well understand the importance of issue monitoring and influencing, as well as relationship building with public officials. They work closely with our food and agricultural clients to represent their interests in the Indiana, Illinois and Ohio state legislatures, as well as in Washington, D.C. These professionals represent clients when pressure is brought to bear by the administrative, legislative and regulatory actions of governments, NGOs, activist groups and others.
