Agribusiness lending has been a significant part of Chapman and Cutler's long history of representing commercial lenders.

We represent lenders in virtually every type of agribusiness lending transaction. These include secured and unsecured revolving credit and term loan facilities, letter of credit facilities, acquisition financing, international trade financing, construction financing, synthetic leases, recapitalizations, and consensual restructurings. We represent our agent-bank clients in every phase of agribusiness transactions, from initial structuring through syndication and documentation.

Our transaction experience is as broad as the world of agribusiness. Businesses financed in these transactions include crop production; fruit and vegetable processing, canning, and distribution; the production and distribution of agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides; the production and distribution of beef, pork, and poultry products; the wholesale and retail distribution of groceries and related products; plant and animal biogenetics; specialty food production and distribution; the production and distribution of dairy products; and the production of timber and timber products.
