McCarron & Diess
focuses on representation of produce businesses in cases and issues
under the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA). The firm
was established in 1980 by Stephen McCarron who served as an attorney
for the USDA, PACA Branch in Washington, D.C.
We have represented hundreds of produce companies throughout the U.S.
and internationally involving every kind of case that can arise under
the PACA. These cases include trust cases, reparation cases, disciplinary
cases, appeals, misbranding, bonding, licensing, audits, responsibly
connected cases and international transactions.
We work as a team and strive to resolve cases in the most economical
and efficient manner possible. Each lawyer brings his or her unique
perspective to each case, which ensures complete and thorough representation.
We are skilled and experienced litigators and have litigated thousands
of cases in courts around the country and before the USDA.
We also provide the following services:
- consultation on legal and business matters,
- mediation between parties in all segments of the produce industry,
- arbitration, and seminars to provide information on the PACA
to operate more efficiently and more profitably within the law.
