Corporate farms require counsel regarding business matters from organizational documents to recapitalizations, shareholder disputes, financing, restructuring and work-outs, mergers and acquisitions, and tax planning. When a dispute arises, our litigation team represents farms in contract and valuation disputes, property damage claims, collection pursuits, and tax issues.
Operating a family farm, whether small or large, often requires balancing a productive business operation against the backdrop of a multi-generational family dynamic. Farmers face ever-increasing pressures from family members, employees, local, state and federal government agencies, and creditors. Farmers relish their status as independent operators, but when issues develop, counsel who understands the farming business can be invaluable.
In the food
processing industry, our legal team has assisted clients with mergers and
acquisitions, financing, loan workouts, restructuring, and franchising. We
address employee labor and compensation issues and identify solutions to keep farming
and food production on track.
