Agricultural Farmland and Agribusiness Lawyers in Argentina

Agricultural Farmland and Agribusiness Lawyers in Argentina


When a farmer is looking for an agricultural lawyer -also known as an “Ag lawyer”- the main question to ask that lawyer is whether that attorney ever owned a farm or was a farmer himself. Sebastian Limeres comes from two generations of farmers in his family. He has never been a full-time farmer but by having had a grandfather who was a full-time farmer in the Province of Buenos, and having helped his father who was a part-time farmer he knows more about Argentine farming and agricultural, livestock, and crop lawyering than most Argentinian attorneys.

His grandfather was a Spaniard engineer who came from Europe in the early 1900’s and bought a farm of almost 1000 hectares in the Province of Buenos Aires with his family’s life savings. He was a full-time farmer and his father did it part-time. His father became an Argentinian engineer and worked the farm until he moved to New York to pursue an MBA. For many decades the farm remained in the family until the next generation decided to take over.

    Personal Injury Matters in Argentina


    Our law firm can represent international clients in most farming-related matters. We have even represented English-speaking clients from overseas with personal injury cases involved in livestock automobile accidents produced by cattle owned by Argentine landowners. Whenever animals escape their enclosure or wander away, they may end up on the road or highway. Any number of reasons can lead to an animal ending up in the road after breaking down a fence. These accidents can have catastrophic results. Especially if a vehicle hits a cow, pig, goat, horse, or another large farm animal. Anyone who owns, keeps, or controls an animal with an unusually dangerous nature or tendencies can be responsible for the harm their animal causes.
