Beveridge & Diamond, P.C. has been active in food and agricultural biotechnology since the earliest days of the federal regulation of biotechnology in the United States. We successfully represented the industry’s interests when EPA’s first approval of an environmental release of a genetically modified organism was challenged by the Foundation on Economic Trends. On the heels of that success, we represented the first company to apply for pre-market approvals from multiple agencies under the then-new Coordinated Framework For The Regulation Of Biotechnology.
Since those early days, we have represented numerous food, seed, and pesticide companies in developing and implementing regulatory strategies and defending against critics. We assist clients in forging alliances to develop and commercialize seeds and products. We participate in the development of international instruments that seek to regulate biotechnology, and are experienced with regulatory regimes for biotechnology around the world.
Beveridge & Diamond’s reputation for excellence in food and agriculture biotechnology matters is based on twenty years of working with U.S. and international clients who discover, obtain government approvals for, manufacture, and promote food, seeds, and pesticides made through biotechnology. We work with each client to identify its business objectives, to establish the most effective regulatory or commercial strategies in light of those objectives, and to implement the strategies to achieve or exceed the business objectives.
We have built our reputation by providing top quality legal advice that is practical and effective. We make it a priority to learn about and understand each client’s business and objectives, with the goal of providing long term advice that continually enhances our client’s business and reputation.
