Timber and forest products

At Eversheds Sutherland, we are widely known for our innovative legal work for companies and investors active in the timber and forest products industries. Whatever your needs in this complex legal area, we are here to help you.

Experienced timber and forest products lawyers

Our lawyers have been at the forefront of the migration of commercial timberland ownership in North America from the large forest products companies to institutional investors. We have represented clients in the largest timberland transactions in North America, including acting for the purchasing consortium in the largest private land transaction in US history.

As institutional investor interest in timberlands has grown, Eversheds Sutherland has assisted businesses in the formation and operation of real estate investment trusts and other private investment funds that acquire US and international timberlands, particularly in Latin America, Asia and Oceania. We also have extensive experience in emerging areas such as conservation easements, mitigation banking, biomass and carbon credits.

Eversheds Sutherland provides comprehensive services relating to every facet of timber and natural resources across the globe. These include:

  • tax structuring
  • fund formation
  • pass-through vehicles
  • environmental issues
  • cutting contracts and supply agreements
  • securities law compliance
  • mergers and acquisitions
  • carbon credits
  • timberland finance
