Valuation – Agribusiness, Natural Resources & Energy

The Agribusiness, Natural Resources & Energy Practice Group focuses on complex land valuation, including infrastructure, mineral and water rights, and energy components (wind/solar/hydro and power plants).

Due to the close relationship between rural lands and agriculture, the valuation of wilderness and conservation lands/easements and mitigation credits are also emphasized. In addition, our professionals have extensive experience with renewable resources including wind, solar, geothermal and water, and the infrastructure that supports storage, distribution and transmission of these resources.
