Kim Manuelides, a partner in Saul Ewing’s Commercial Litigation Practice and a member of the firm’s Agriculture and Food Law Working Group, is featured in this story explaining the Maryland State Bar Association’s decision to form an Agriculture Law Committee and her role as its co-chair. More than 60 attorneys representing the state’s diverse geography are on the committee and work in law firms of various sizes and in a variety of practice areas.

Kim explains in the article that the agricultural industry’s legal needs are “‘underserved,’ especially in an ‘increasingly complex legal landscape’ that is not necessarily covered in all aspects by substantive fields such as environmental or animal law, but rather delves deeper into applied substantive areas like estate planning, labor, and intellectual property.”

Kim, who has an extensive livestock background, has experience assisting producers and agri-businesses in connection with: general business law issues; regulatory and administrative oversight and compliance issues; land use; veterinary practice management issues; and organic food marketing and regulation.
