Food & Agriculture

Whether you run a company in the food and agriculture sector, are involved in nature development of perhaps manage a country estate, your interests will inevitably clash with the interests of others in the countryside from time to time. Recreation, heritage and water management also make demands on rural space, while the many rules do not make doing business, land management and development any easier either.

At home in the rural setting

We are prepared to wager that we are the only big-city firm to be fully at home in the rural setting. We can provide specialists for all the legal questions facing businesspeople in the food and agriculture sector. Some examples are:

  • spatial planning
  • environmental law
  • agricultural tenancy
  • agricultural production rights
  • expropriation
  • integrated environmental permits and zoning plans
  • nature conservation law

Together with our network 

We can give you good advice on the tax aspects of doing business in rural areas or planning preparation, ecological assessments and grant applications. For advice in these areas, we collaborate with a network of external experts. The food and agriculture sector extends beyond the Dutch borders, which is why we also offer direct international legal support through our international network, Multilaw.
