For over 160 years Piper Alderman has acted for some of Australia's leading pastoral houses and pioneers of agriculture. From the establishment of commercial agriculture in the 1800s until the present day, we have carved a niche as a leading legal advisor to clients investing and operating in the agribusiness sector.

We provide a full suite of corporate and commercial legal advice.

Our clients inside the farm gate include many involved in broad acre and irrigated crop production, viticulture, aquaculture, dairy, meat, eggs, timber, nuts, fruit, wool and cotton.

We also have particular experience in advising clients adding value beyond the farm gate in food, fibre and beverage value chains, research and development and agricultural investment and finance.

We seek to distinguish ourselves as leading advisers to the agribusiness sector by developing long-term relationships with our clients, understanding our clients' businesses and the risks they face and keeping abreast of developments and opportunities in the agribusiness sector.

Piper Alderman has a strong commitment to the agribusiness sector. We are sponsors of the Agribusiness Association of Australia and have supported important rural and regional initiatives, including advising pro bono on matters such as the establishment of the Nuffield International Farming Scholarships Program.
