Milk Producers Council (MPC) and Weintraub Tobin Chediak Coleman Grodin Law Corporation (Weintraub) announced their new strategic partnership. The partnership was created to provide labor and employment and environmental support services for the dairy family members of MPC and offer these members access to legal counseling. Weintraub’s program developed for MPC’s members includes unlimited access to Weintraub’s monthly Labor and Employment Seminars, regular updates on evolving labor/employment and environmental issues, as well as 24/7 access to its attorneys.

“Whether you are talking about environmental or labor regulations, the sea of red tape in California can be drowning for our State’s dairy farmers, and it’s seemingly worse by the day,” said Rob Vandenheuvel, MPC’s General Manager. “This partnership will provide MPC’s members with access to valuable information that can help them navigate their way through those regulations. We’re very excited to be partnering with this prestigious firm for the benefit of our membership.”

Lee N. Smith, a Weintraub shareholder in Fresno and Sacramento added, “While we have been doing work for the dairy industry for many years on the environmental side, we look forward to bringing our extensive labor expertise to these dairy families as well.”
