Adapting and Evolving: B&C, Acta, and BCCM Services Available Worldwide without Interruption

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®), The Acta Group (Acta®), and B&C® Consortia Management L.L.C. (BCCM) extend our best wishes and heartfelt hope that all our clients, friends, and their families are safe and well.

We write to assure you that as we all adapt and evolve to accommodate the new normal, we are functioning as usual. You may not know this, but we have operated for more than two decades with full remote-work capability for all professionals worldwide. Institutionally, our business model from the start was designed to provide the flexibility needed to attract the best professionals in the business and retain their services regardless of their locations. While the current global developments are challenging, delivering outstanding and attentive “service as usual” to our clients is not. Our attorneys, scientists, and regulatory and business consultants are available and working at full-service levels without interruption or delay.

Regulatory activity is unabated, and innovators in the industrial and agricultural chemical community will play a substantial and possibly game-changing role in the worldwide campaign to confront, contain, and mitigate collateral effects of COVID-19. No family of firms is better suited to provide nimble, savvy, and effective global regulatory strategy for product approvals, product defense, and associated business issues than B&C, Acta, and BCCM.

Current priorities for chemical companies include those detailed in recent firm memoranda:

  • Navigating the Jurisdictional Tightrope between Biopesticides, Biostimulants, and Related Emerging Technologies, April 29, 2020, 12:00 pm (EDT), via webinar

Register for the American Bar Association (ABA) webinar “Navigating the Jurisdictional Tightrope Between Biopesticides, Biostimulants, and Related Emerging Technologies” with Acta professionals deconstructing the jurisdictional boundaries distinguishing pesticides, biopesticides, plant regulators, biostimulants, and related technologies. The webinar will focus on draft EPA guidance intended to clarify the lines between and among those products that are subject to FIFRA registration as plant regulators and those biostimulant products not subject to FIFRA registration. The webinar also will focus on new and evolving chemistry and technology issues that may blur some jurisdictional lines or potentially move products from one category to another. Lynn L. Bergeson, President, Acta; Lisa R. Burchi, Senior Regulatory Specialist, Acta; and Sheryl Lindros Dolan, Senior Regulatory Specialist, Acta, will present.

We hope our business services are helpful as clients navigate a new normal.
