Transactional Associate Joins Michael Best & Friedrich

Michael Best & Friedrich LLP announced the addition of a new associate to their Washington, D.C. office. Emily R. Lyons will join their Transactional Practice Group as an associate. She is the former director of regulatory affairs and counsel for the International Dairy Foods Association. 

Michael Best Agribusiness and Food & Beverage Industry Team Co-Chair Dave Crass said, “Having provided regulatory and legal advice to clients across the country as counsel to IDFA, Emily brings a unique perspective and set of relationships and experiences to help us continue the expansion of our depth and breadth of practitioners serving the agriculture, food and beverage sectors. With the recent activities of FDA and USDA, Emily will be a great asset to our group and clients.”

Lyons’ experience, including growing up on a dairy farm, has helped her develop knowledge in food safety, food labeling and marketing, environmental, worker safety, sustainability and organic standard regulations. She has handled cases with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, United States Department of Agriculture, and Occupational Safety with Health Administration.

She said of her move, “Learning how a client’s business operates is invaluable in providing quality legal advice. I’m looking forward to bringing that skill set combined with my experience as in-house counsel to a national trade association to assist farmers and food and beverage companies with their legal and regulatory compliance issues, be they international or domestic.”

Lyons earned her J.D. from Vermont Law School and her B.A. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
