Agribusiness

In a global, technology-driven, and rapidly changing economy, the agribusiness industry aims to satisfy the needs of a worldwide growing population while managing the impact of the increased demand on the environment and the renewable resources that are 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.
