We have extensive experience in the area of U.S. and international policy relating to the regulation and trade of agricultural commodities, food and beverage, textiles, and plant-based pharmaceutical products derived from biotechnology, as well as other emerging technologies, most notably nanotechnology.
Tracking the evolution of these controversial issues from their inception, our attorneys and professionals from our Public Policy Practice have developed a thorough understanding of the regulatory regimes of many major U.S. trading partners worldwide. We also have amassed a vast network of U.S. and international contacts, and have compiled an extensive database of international regulations governing agricultural commodities, food and beverage, and plant-based pharmaceutical products derived from biotechnology, cosmetics, food and beverage packaging, and other products derived from nanotechnology. We address issues ranging from advising whether a product containing transgenic materials must be labeled in Peru to recommending how to arrange a transfer of sophisticated transgenic materials to China.
New policy initiatives continue to be proposed regulating food and beverage, agricultural commodities, and pharmaceutical products derived from biotechnology, as well as the fast-growing range of products derived from nanotechnology processes. We will continue to use our knowledge and experience and determine how it directly affects you.
