Emord & Associates, P.C. is an AV-rated (highest in legal ability and ethics, Martindale-Hubbell organization) constitutional and administrative law firm located in Washington, D.C., Clifton, Virginia, and Chandler, Arizona (see emord.com).  The firm has represented clients in eight successful First Amendment challenges against the Food and Drug Administration since 1999.  On January 22, 2014, Emord & Associates completed a legal review of the 2013 Vermont legislation (H.112).  H.112 requires labeling disclosures of genetically engineered ingredients or components.  The Bill also prohibits use of the term “natural” in association with genetically engineered products.   Emord & Associates, P.C. reviewed the bill under governing First Amendment, Dormant Commerce Clause, and Supremacy Clause precedent.  The firm determined that the law satisfies constitutional requirements.  A copy of the firm’s legal analysis is available online here.  For questions or comments, please contact Jonathan W.
