Agribusiness

In a technology-driven, and rapidly changing global economy, the agribusiness industry aims to satisfy the needs of a growing worldwide population while managing the impact of the increased demand on the environment and the renewable resources at the core of the industry. In response to these trends, institutional investors, asset managers, advisors and operators focused on food, farmland, forestry, agriculture, ag tech, storage, infrastructure and other participants in the value chain turn to Goodwin for leading expertise on a full range of business issues.

Our team of agribusiness lawyers has an in-depth commercial understanding of the industry and advise our global clients on all aspects of their agribusiness operations and investments. Our agribusiness clients receive coordinated, across-the-board coverage for their needs, including counseling emerging companies on the structuring of complex domestic and foreign financial transactions and on the development and protection of cutting-edge technologies; investors and operators on the negotiation and structuring of investments through joint ventures, funds, co-investments and management arrangements with international, regional and local sponsors, operators and managers; and fund sponsors on the establishment and operation of global and domestic funds.
