Taylor leverages his skill as a strategic communicator to help clients in the agribusiness, energy, and food and beverage industries find solutions to complex regulatory challenges.

He focuses his practice on representing manufacturers, farms, food processors, public utilities, and other regulated entities before state and federal regulatory agencies, including the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR), the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP), and utility regulators in both Wisconsin and Iowa.

In the environmental arena, Taylor’s work includes defending clients in enforcement proceedings, navigating permitting issues, and providing ongoing compliance counseling. Taylor counsels clients on a diverse array of environmental matters involving water, air, and waste issues. 

Taylor’s experience in the energy sector includes representing public utilities in contested case proceedings before state utility regulatory commissions and preparing filings with an eye for detail and an understanding of clients’ strategic objectives. Taylor’s energy and environmental clients also benefit from his understanding of local government and land use law.


Additionally, Taylor works closely with attorneys in the firm’s FDA Regulatory practice. In this role, he conducts research and counsels clients on a variety of food safety and labeling issues.  

Because of Taylor’s deep roots in Wisconsin’s agricultural community, clients in the agribusiness and food industries value his gate-to-plate understanding of their businesses and his knowledge of emerging industry issues.  Taylor also has experience working with several agriculture organizations, including the Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin, Dow AgroSciences and the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation. His hands-on work with these organizations provides him with a uniquely informed perspective on environmental and other regulatory challenges facing clients in the food production industry.
