S&W Seed Company, a global agricultural company headquartered in the Central Valley of California, announced that Michael Nordstrom, an attorney specializing in water and agricultural law, has been appointed as a member of the company’s board of directors.
Since 1982, Nordstrom has been a practicing lawyer, currently with his office in Hanford, California, where he specializes in water and agricultural law. Nordstrom earned a B.S. in Agricultural Management from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, California, and his J.D. from Santa Clara University School of Law. He has decades of experience advising central California clients on water rights and property issues. He also has extensive relationships in the farming community where a portion of the company’s seed production is centered, having farmed in the San Joaquin Valley for over 20 years.
“His extensive experience in agriculture and water-related legal and regulatory issues, as well as his extensive contacts in the agriculture industry, brings a level of expertise and value to our board that is not widely available elsewhere,” S&W Seed Company board chairman Mark Harvey said.
