Agribusiness & Life Sciences

The business of agriculture – including agrichemicals, breeding, crop production, distribution, machinery, processing, seed supply and food production – is core to the worldwide economy.

Life science companies, both human and agribusiness, face complex challenges as they move from development and inception to commercialization.

LWBJ serves significant clients in both agribusiness and life sciences by advising in the development of optimal structures and efficient tax strategies, compliance with regulations and the achievement of financing and/or IPO readiness. We provide experienced financial guidance, including outsourced CFO services, to help maximize shareholder value. We deliver transaction assistance and due diligence to clients seeking growth through acquisition. And the firm has successfully served as the M&A advisor for transactions involving clients in animal protein, food processing, renewable energy and cleantech/biotech.

From our offices in West Des Moines and Ames, the firm is well positioned within the Cultivation Corridor, America’s premier agbioscience region. In addition, we work closely with the Renewal Rural Iowa Initiative of the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation.
