Establishing and Maintaining Agricultural Businesses
For generations, agriculture has served as the number one industry in Ohio. As such, we recognize the importance of helping agricultural businesses to survive, thrive, and expand in the face of our changing economy. We are committed to helping you deal with the legal and financial challenges of establishing and maintaining your farm, ranch, livestock dealership, orchard, vineyard, dairy, apiary, or other agribusiness.
One of the first obstacles facing any agricultural enterprise is the navigation of zoning and permit laws. We are experienced in finding the quickest and most cost-efficient ways to establish your agribusiness as a legally operating entity. In many cases, we may pursue a zoning variance and agricultural exemptions to make sure that your business enjoys all the privileges it is entitled to by law.
Care and Sale of Livestock; Interpretation of State Livestock Standards
If you are unsure of the statutory requirements for the care and sale of livestock, it is important to see that these standards are met in order to avoid any potential legal risk or liability. Our attorneys can work with you and your employees to ensure that your agribusiness is operating in a legally secure way, and that your livestock transactions are both liability-free and contractually sound.
