David’s practice sits squarely at the intersection of the food-water-energy nexus. His work in the areas of environmental, regulatory, agricultural production, manufacturing and distribution, and energy projects gives him the depth of experience necessary to counsel clients who will be feeding and powering a projected global population of nine billion people by 2050—at a time when resource scarcity and consumer confidence require an ongoing commitment to stewardship and sustainability.
David grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin and maintains a presence in Michael Best’s Madison, WI office, as well as in Washington, D.C., allowing him to serve the agricultural, dairy, and food processing industries both locally and at a national policy level. Besides providing environmental, regulatory, project development, and legislative counsel, David’s work for agribusiness includes enforcement defense, compliance counseling, project development structure and permitting, litigation support, and interest-based negotiation.
