At OFW, we provide legal, regulatory, and bipartisan government affairs representation to companies, individuals and trade associations in the agriculture, food, drug and medical device industries, including representation of the interests of modern agriculture in matters involving environmental law.
Companies that do business in the United States and globally are subject to diverse government laws, compliance requirements and policies, including those of Congress, the Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and many other federal, state and local agencies. Moreover, the ability of Congress and regulatory agencies to keep pace with technological innovation is limited and many of the laws and regulations governing industry are vague, unnecessary, or overly burdensome. Understanding and knowing how to navigate this complex regulatory environment are essential components of managing successful business efforts in the U.S. and abroad.
Our attorneys and policy advisors are well situated to anticipate legislative initiatives before Congress, to communicate with our clients about proposed changes, to lobby Congress on their behalf, and to work with federal agencies to ensure the fair and effective implementation of new legislation. Whether counseling clients on regulatory compliance, representing a company before a regulatory agency or the courts, or lobbying Congress on behalf of an individual company or an entire industry, we zealously advocate on behalf of every client.
OFW represents clients from around the world. The experience of our attorneys and senior policy advisors — who have backgrounds in government, industry, science and medicine — coupled with proactive, responsive and effective service, has helped OFW Law a reputation for depth and subject matter expertise in representing our clients.
