Agribusiness

The Directors and staff have long standing family and business ties to the rural community and agricultural sector of the community.

The Firm works closely with the agricultural industry and the advisors that support them, and we have a deep understanding of legal issues that are relevant to the industry.

We advise on all aspects of legal matters that affect our rural clientele including:

 

  • the buying or selling of farming properties;
  • all matters relating to pastoral leases (including the sale and purchase of the lessee’s interest, compulsory acquisitions and diversification permits);
  • farm succession planning;
  • sharefarming agreements and farm leasing;
  • agistment contracts;
  • mortgage and finance matters particular to farming (including the preparation of chattel mortgages);
  • Agricultural focused litigation and dispute resolution;

 

It is as a result of our understanding, professionalism and ability to communicate clearly that see’s our firm’s solicitors enjoy significant support among rural referrers and maintain long term relationships with many rural clients.
