Agriculture

Our attorneys have extensive experience in successfully advising, navigating, and litigating the vast majority of common issues facing agricultural business.  RTW attorneys frequently represent almond, walnut, pistachio, wine-grape, blueberry, and rice growers, along with agricultural equipment manufacturers in cases ranging from breach of sales contracts to product-misrepresentation claims to pesticide-drift cases to complex disputes about cultivation delays caused by suppliers resulting in lost yields.

RTW also has substantial experience in the regulatory and statutory environments affecting vineyards and wineries.  In fact, one of our attorneys owns a Placer County vineyard and winery, and has extensive experience facing the day-to-day issues of grape-growers and wine-makers.
