Keller and Heckman LLP to Host a Practical Primer on Pesticides in Washington, DC on May 7-8, 2013

Global law firm Keller and Heckman will be hosting a Practical Primer on Pesticides on May 7-8, 2013, in Washington, DC. This comprehensive two-day course is designed and presented by the attorneys and scientists of Keller and Heckman.

Previous Practical Primers on Pesticides have garnered praise from participants; an attendee from last year's seminar attests the program provides "a really great basis of knowledge required for regulatory professionals who work with pesticides in the U.S." Another attendee remarked that the program was "useful for regulators and scientists alike."

This year's offering is poised to be similarly well-received. Highlights from the program include an overview of registration applications and exemptions from registration, a discussion of inert ingredients and the approval process, a look at procedures for importing and exporting pesticides, an analysis of enforcement at the federal and state levels, and other current developments in this ever-changing field.

Keller and Heckman has a broad practice in the areas of regulatory law, litigation and business transactions, serving both domestic and international clients. With offices in Washington, D.C., Brussels, San Francisco, and Shanghai, the firm helps the world's most vital businesses achieve their objectives. A pioneer in the use of interdisciplinary approaches to problem-solving, Keller and Heckman has had an in-house scientific staff since 1971 that works closely with the firm's attorneys on matters of technical complexity.
