Washington, DC, October 2, 1998 -- In response to relentless growth in the scale and complexity of global chemical testing and regulatory matters, Markus W. Brombacher announced today the formation of a new environmental regulatory consultancy called INREX, L.L.C. ("INREX"). Mr. Brombacher, a former environmental consultant with the Washington, DC office of the McKenna & Cuneo, LLP law firm, will act as the company's President and will continue to counsel international and domestic chemical companies and the legal community on international environmental regulation and data compensation claims.

"Today's pesticide chemical industry is characterized by increasing consolidation and global orientation, and by the rapid expansion of basic pesticide producers into generic markets. These new market alignments have a significant impact on global regulatory requirements, and companies must pay careful attention to the status of their pesticide registrations, as well as data protection and data compensation implications. INREX is uniquely equipped to counsel the pesticide chemical industry on these complex issues," observes Mr. Brombacher.

Lynn Bergeson, a noted environmental attorney states, "Markus is an expert at untangling the web of complex international environmental regulations. His extensive network of contacts in the European Union, Asia and India and language skills make him uniquely qualified to counsel companies in these challenging areas." Bergeson is the principal shareholder of Bergeson & Campbell, P.C., a law firm that focuses exclusively on pesticide and chemical product approval and regulation and in environmental, health and safety, and associated business issues.
