Understanding your vision - sets us apart from other law firms
Rural and Agribusiness
Agribusiness is a broad sector, but we’ve got you covered. We can provide you with commercial and property-related legal advice to help you achieve your goals.
Our rural law and agribusiness legal team enjoys a reputation as Bundaberg’s best, and have assisted local, state, national and international clients with significant agribusiness transactions.
Rural law and agribusiness is one of our key areas of practice. Our long association with our region has focused on sugar, smallcrops and grazing and in recent years the significant growth in chillis, sweet potatoes, macadamias and avocadoes.
How We Can Help You
We understand the challenges and unique legal issues facing the agriculture sector and its supply chain, and can help you manoeuvre through the complexities, understand the legal implications of carrying on an agribusiness and settle disputes.
Our services cover:
- Rural property sales & purchases
- Farm succession
- Rural property leasing
- Partnership disputes
- Spray drift claims
- Water licences and water allocations
- Workplace health & safety issues
Our property and commercial partners and support staff are recognised as leaders in the sector. With a long history of acting for local farmers, graziers and orchardists, we now have clients right through the supply chain from farm to market, including investors, service providers, farm/orchard managers, packers, marketers and exporters. We have built up strong connections locally, interstate and internationally and it is fair to say that agribusiness is a staple of our firm’s business.
In recent years we’ve assisted clients with large scale orchard sales, purchases and upgrades. Negotiating and formalising water supply contracts and infrastructure agreements have also been successfully facilitated by our partners and their paralegals. Foreign Investment applications, appeals and advices have enabled our clients to attain their agriculture investment goals.
Leasing and tenure advice for use of rural lands for communications infrastructure facilities and alternative energy production have proven a welcome value addition upon which we have been proud to assist. Our firm has also acted in preparation of farming partnership, share-farming, agistment, harvesting, marketing, service, milling and farm management agreements amongst other legal documents to ensure our clients’ rural needs are met and protected.
Our loyal agribusiness clients recognise and appreciate Glen Toll and David Baker’s vast knowledge and ability to help them achieve their agribusiness goals in a complex environment. For exceptional advice and service in Agribusiness Law, contact Baker O’Brien Toll today.
