Protecting & Sustaining Agricultural Innovators.

Our nation’s food supply is a vital part of America, and of the Pacific Northwest. Our attorneys know how to support our agricultural and food industry clients and get you back to work while we handle water rights, government regulation and reporting, compliance, and special interest litigation that threaten producers every day. Whether you face an NPDES permitting issue, wetlands or swampbuster issues, an alleged Clean Air Act violation, or questions about the permissible use of drones, we have the knowledge, experience, and depth to fight for your rights, and implement solutions.

We have helped clients buy and sell a broad range of agricultural properties, including farms, ranches and processing facilities. We have represented cattle producers in disputes over BLM allotments. Marten advises clients on strategic regulatory and government enforcement matters across the full spectrum of issues that affect agribusiness. In addition to traditional issues, these include biotech innovation, real estate and land use, toxic waste, artificial intelligence applications, and others. Our team is composed of lawyers who have represented agricultural interests in private practice for decades, experienced former government lawyers with an insider’s perspective on the regulatory process, as well as experienced trial and appellate lawyers. Together, we challenge government enforcers in court, defend actions by special interests against food producers and farmers, advise businesses and individuals facing permitting obstacles, notices of violation (NOVs), and compliance issues. Our attorneys handle negotiations, mediations, and rulemakings with a wide array of state and federal agencies.
