Composed of more than 100 lawyers, this group serves the full range of national and worldwide legal needs for companies in these industries.

"This business model leverages our longtime commitment to and representation of food, agriculture and biofuels companies," says group leader Kim J. Walker. "We are ideally positioned to respond to these clients' evolving business and legal needs and to provide the most cost-effective and time-sensitive support."

Faegre & Benson has also formed legal service teams in core practice areas to assure clients that the firm understands the business context of their needs, says Walker. These service areas include litigation, mergers and acquisitions, real estate, immigration, intellectual property and environmental.

"We are proud to work with companies in the food, agriculture and biofuels industries," says Thomas G. Morgan, chairman of the firm. "Organizing and focusing resources in this way reinforces our firmwide commitment to collaborate with current and future industry leaders."

The firm's clients in these industries include Cargill, DuPont, Pioneer, Hormel, Land O'Lakes, General Mills, ADM, Syngenta Seeds and Syngenta Crop Protection, VeraSun Energy, Advanced BioEnergy and Agrium.
