Stokes Law Office, LLP – Supporting Success and Mitigating Risk Within and Across Borders
We are a US-based, multi-lingual law firm that represents US, Latin American and other international clients by providing sound, commercially-based legal advice concerning the sale of agricultural goods and produce. We also represent Latin American banks and foreign businesses that export goods and services to the United States.
We understand the goals of our clients – reducing risk while ensuring the smooth delivery of and collection for goods and produce in a timely and cost-effective manner.
We Provide Advice on PACA, US Produce Laws, and US Laws, Regulations, and Contractual Matters, and Risk Mitigation Strategies Concerning Agricultural Purchases and Sales.
For our US-based clients we additionally advise on matters concerning international purchases and sales of goods and produce, and bank-related matters.
For our Latin American and non-US clients, we also advise on customary US contractual matters. When US-based companies fail to pay for purchases or become subject to bankruptcy, we represent our non-US based clients, including credit insurers to collect the funds rightfully owed to them. As our attorneys are admitted in many US Federal courts and state courts, we are usually able to represent clients in many applicable jurisdictions, thus saving our clients considerable expense from not having to engage multiple law firms.
For all clients our focus is on their business objectives, we begin our representation by asking the client what it wants to achieve. Our attorneys and staff are fluent in Spanish and Portuguese.
