Areas of Expertise

The Bockorny Group knows how the federal government works. With unparalleled expertise in regulatory and legislative matters facing businesses and trade associations alike, we provide our clients with the knowledge and the credentials to influence policy in the following practice areas:

Agriculture / Food Safety

The Bockorny group has a robust agriculture and food safety practice. The Bockorny Group assists clients on business matters involving animal health, dietary nutrition guidelines, food safety, Farm Bill implementation, trade, energy and biofuels.

Scott Shearer, a principal at the firm and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Agriculture during the Clinton Administration, leads the practice.  He provides insight into the inner workings of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is a formidable force in his field.  A native of Illinois, Scott continues this tradition, advising new members of Congress on issues such as the re-authorization of the Farm Bill as well as controversial international trade disputes involving agricultural interests. He and the entire Bockorny Group always look at policy challenges like these through the lens of business with the goal of articulating and designing strategies that produce favorable outcomes.
