Over many years, the team at Leonard Curtis has supported clients and lenders in the UK’s agricultural sector – providing clear, robust advice to help overcome problems, preserve value and maximise options available to all stakeholders.
The agricultural sector, like many, continues to experience ongoing challenges arising from Brexit, the ongoing ripple effects of the Covid19 pandemic, labour and supply chain shortages and increases in costs. Furthermore, the sector has long faced its own specific concerns around weather and climate change, crop failures and animal welfare issues, logistics and pricing pressures.
We understand that agricultural organisations are unique in nature, come in all shapes, sizes and structures and that, in many cases, the business, its owners and often their families are intrinsically intertwined.
We are well placed to assist in considering the structure and model of agricultural businesses, restructuring lending arrangements,assisting with new lending for investment in technology, diversification and more, troubleshooting relationships with lenders and other creditors and presenting well rounded options for the business.
