Food, Drink, Agri-business & Bloodstock 

Ireland’s food, drink, agri-business & bloodstock sectors are entering a period of growth which presents exciting opportunities, as well as challenges. These challenges include: obtaining finance, M&A, developing international markets, taxation, corporate governance and compliance.

Food, Drink, Agri-business & Bloodstock

In bloodstock, the protection and further development of one of our most successful industries in the face of intense overseas competition is a core challenge. We work with many of Ireland’s leading stud farms and other equestrian-related companies, helping them manage their key business issues.
