Nowhere is globalization more evident than in the agribusiness sector that dominates the Midlands, the heart of the United States. Situated in the center of this sector, Baird Holm attorneys have the unique advantage to provide expertise for the growing legal needs arising out of the agriculture and agribusiness finance industries. Our knowledge is especially beneficial to international companies conducting business in the United States. We are skilled at advising on the structuring and documentation of agricultural and agribusiness loans, agricultural real estate transactions, construction, zoning, permitting, sales and leasing, corporate farming regulations, and wind park development and permitting.
Our attorneys have lived and worked abroad and appreciate the importance of understanding the business, economic, cultural and political context of the places where you do business.
