We know that farming is much more than an occupation. It is a way of life. For many of our clients, their land and farming operation represents a legacy that has been carefully crafted and nurtured over decades, and perhaps over several generations. We are passionate about preserving and expanding agriculture for our clients and their families.
Farmers face all of the same business and and estate planning issues as any other family. They are not immune from the impact of lawsuits, family disagreements, divorce, second marriages, addiction, disability, or bad decisions. But farmers must also consider factors such as weather, commodity pricing, lenders, government policies, insurance, tax law changes, family tradition, the high value and low liquidity of most of the their assets.
We have guided farmers through the formation, acquisition, and transfer of business entities, business succession, estate planning, asset protection, preparation and review of contracts, environmental and regulatory matters, real estate and financing issues, insurance issues, and a wide variety of litigation.
We work hard to stay up to date on the issues that affect our farming clients. Jason is a member of the American Agricultural Law Association and has presented at numerous state, regional and national conferences on business and estate planning. He writes about planning issues at www.planpreserveprotect.com.
