Since the term was coined in 1957, agribusiness has seen considerable change.
We work with our clients to harness this change, to establish, maintain and grow their agribusiness operations and portfolio interests across the globe.
By understanding the key sensitivities, issues and challenges this sector faces and the opportunities and commercial drivers that inform their decisions we partner with multinational clients in both established markets and higher growth emerging markets to create better business outcomes.
We are focused on ensuring commercial outcomes for our clients and delivering commercially astute, innovative advice and a premium client experience. This investment in our relationships builds the exceptional, lasting working relationships and the deep understanding we are known for.
We can also advise on all aspects of mergers and acquisitions, dispute resolution and other key areas of commercial legal services across agribusiness sub-sectors including:
- Livestock & Aquaculture
- Grains & Sugar
- Processing & Supply Chain
- Real Estate
