Agricultural Law

Agriculture is an intrinsic part our local economy, but so are the competing interests of parties involved in this varied and complicated industry. Agricultural contracts, land use disputes, and lease law call for specialized legal expertise as well as an understanding of the industry.

The Burns Cronauer Brown team has broad experience in preparing farm leases, 1031 exchanges, and documentation for conservation revenue programs. We understand the details of nuisance laws and The Livestock Management Act and have successfully defended the interests of small farmers and individuals against the practices of large confined animal feeding operations (CAFOS) that often lack an understanding of local historical, cultural, and environmental practices.

Cronauer has successfully represented:

  • Individuals
  • Farmers
  • Businesses
  • Citizens Groups

Whether you need help with an agricultural land transaction or are in a dispute with a factory farm operation, the Burns Cronauer Brown group has the experience and resources to protect your interests and provide you with expert legal council.

With 35 years of experience in the area of Agricultural Law, the Burns Cronauer Brown team is uniquely positioned to advise and advocate for persons involved in or affected by our region’s agricultural industry.
