Representing the Produce Industry Since 1989

Founded by produce industry veteran Lawrence H. Meuers, Meuers Law Firm, P.L. has been providing field-to-fork legal services to the produce industry since 1989.

Producers and distributors of fresh fruits and vegetables engage our services from throughout the United States. Our comprehensive services go well beyond what is traditionally understood as PACA law. These services include everything from advice and guidance on the day-to-day challenges facing produce companies to representation in the most complicated disputes that arise for businesses in this unique industry.

Our full-service approach, together with a reputation for results that includes recovering more than $100 million for our clients, is why produce industry heavy hitters have been turning to our law firm for decades.

Contact us today if you need legal assistance with any of the following:

  • Advice and Guidance for Produce Companies
  • Contracts and Documentation
  • PACA Regulations
  • PACA Trust Enforcement
  • Bankruptcy-Related Issues
  • Food Safety
  • Transportation of Produce
  • PACA Disciplinary Actions
  • Disputes

We are more than lawyers. We are problem solvers. Solving problems does not mean rushing headlong into court, although litigation is a path we are certainly comfortable with. However, our knowledge of the produce industry and the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA), together with our commitment to innovation, can lead to fresh, powerful solutions that save our clients money and time while preserving valuable business relationships.

Call 239-513-9191 to arrange your consultation.
