Agriculture Business and Legal Basics

September 28, 2022

Sponsored by ABI's Real Estate Committee

Agriculture is the original real estate-based business. Combined with its related industries, the agriculture sector accounts for 19.7 million jobs in the U.S., according to the Department of Agriculture. This vast industry is comprised of multinational corporations and independent family farmers, which are all prone to risks from unpredictable factors ranging from the weather to commodity pricing and trade policy. These variables can lead to distressed situations where restructuring professionals can add value, but they first need to learn the basics of the industry from a business and legal standpoint, particularly chapter 12 bankruptcy — one of the most powerful chapters in the Bankruptcy Code. This program will focus on these issues to prepare attorneys, financial advisors and other professionals for future restructuring assignments in this unique space.
