Attorney General Concludes Investigation in Favor of Risever Machinery

Jan 22, 2024 | Business Law, News

Asa Hutchinson III represented Risever Machinery in connection with an investigation conducted by the Arkansas Attorney General concerning a law related to foreign ownership of real property. Risever is Chinese-owned and operates a manufacturing facility in northeast Arkansas. The two-week investigation led to a finding by the Attorney General that Risever is not in violation of the Arkansas law. Such findings are typically never released to the public or to the target of the investigation; however, in this case, Mr. Hutchinson was able to secure a letter from the Attorney General stating his exculpatory conclusion, which was also posted on the Attorney General’s social media accounts and widely reported by various news outlets.
