I am an attorney experienced in the issues that are unique to businesses which involve providing goods and services to animals and their owners.
From insurance coverage issues, selecting the proper business entity, ensuring proper contractual protection and by analyzing and planning for the unique risks associated with an animal based business, our office can provide the guidance you need to minimize risk and best protect your business, your employees and your personal assets.
Are you an existing business that caters to animals and their owners? Are you thinking of opening a new business or expanding? Ask yourself these three questions: (1) Are you properly incorporated and shielded from personal liability? (2) Do you have proper insurance for your employees, your business and yourself in case of an accident or lawsuit? (3) Are you aware of all of the laws and regulations which impact an animal related business? If you have answered no to any of these questions or are unsure of the answer you should contact an attorney today to discuss these issues.
I understand the particular needs of municipalities, family farms, agribusiness and businesses that deal with animals. Call me today for an appointment and free consultation to discuss your business and your needs.
Agriculture and Markets Law compliance issues
Frequently animal related businesses, farms and municipalities face issues with the New York State Agriculture and Markets Law and the various rules and regulations of the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). If you own or manage a business that is a farm, kennel, a private municipal shelter operating under the Agriculture and Markets Law, pet grooming facility or a niche business looking to produce animal feed, nutritional supplements or pet treats there are a multitude of regulations which must be addressed and complied with in terms of state and federal filings as well as having appropriate contractual terms in place with your vendors and distributors.
I am familiar with these issues and can help to ensure that your business is in compliance.
