Ribstein & Hogan’s agricultural law attorneys recognize the increasing complexity of regulations and legal issues confronted by farmers, ranchers, and agribusinesses in today’s constantly evolving agricultural environment. Whether your farm business needs transactional assistance, litigation representation, or you want to plan for your operation’s future continued success, our attorneys bring experience and expertise to the table to protect your interests in every aspect.
Ribstein & Hogan works closely with their clients to fully understand their vision for the farm operation, including their values and principles. Our attorneys understand the unique challenges and opportunities encountered by agriculture today and use that knowledge in drafting operating and lease agreements, contracts, arranging land acquisitions and sales, and determining whether organizing into a formal business structure better accomplishes the client’s present and future goals.
Ribstein & Hogan have years of experience in helping families plan for future generations and the continued success of their farm and business operations. Our attorneys pay close attention to their client’s goals and counsel clients in planning for their retirement, healthcare, and other elder needs. We understand the importance of dealing with heirs fairly, protecting assets, and preserving the “family farm” for the next generation. We work frequently with farmers in planning the transition of their operation to their children or in selling their operation to a non-family member in an orderly and efficient manner, understanding the importance of not disturbing the farm’s daily operations.
Our agriculture attorneys have experience in legal issues affecting the farming and ranching industries. In representing our clients, we have dealt with agriculture law issues around the use of pesticides, zoning and land use, drainage, and many other issues. Our agricultural law clients range from small family farms, investors and large commercial farming operations.
