The agri and food sector is a very dynamic sector in which border crossing interests often play a role. Entrepreneurs in this sector are confronted with complex legal issues in the field of real estate, financing constructions, (international) contracting, purchasing (and selling) energy, company (re)structuring and succession, insurance contracts, employment law and liability law. Multidisciplinary legal assistance is indispensable in this respect.
Valegis Advocaten has the specialisms to assist the entrepreneur in the agri and food sector on a full service level. However, Valegis lawyers are not satisfied to merely have legal knowledge or general sector knowledge. After all, effective service starts with knowing the client’s business. At Valegis, we recognise that this is important and we are therefore happy to regularly visit our clients in the agri and food sector to catch up, even if there is no specific legal reason to do so. After all, cooperating is easier if the lawyer understands the entrepreneur’s language and knows what is going on.
In recent years, work in this sector and within our office has taken off (internationally). For example, we have been involved in a major merger in the Westland region and for a large tomato grower we have mapped out how financing and securities can be realised in an international context. And of course we handle the daily legal affairs for many agri/food companies.
