Agriculture Law

"Norfolk County, Ontario's Garden, is steeped in agricultural tradition... since 1949, our firm has evolved and grown along with so many of our families' farms."

Brimage Law Group is closely tied to Norfolk County's agricultural community. In fact, several of our lawyers have grown up on family farms that continue to thrive today. Agriculture and agribusiness is our community's backbone and Brimage lawyers recognize the need to assist this industry, whenever possible.

Like most of our practices, Agriculture law is not mutually exclusive and often crosses over to areas such as our Business law practice. However, our mandate to maintain Agriculture as a separate practice speaks to our desire to recognize this industry as a major food & economic contributor to our global community.

Our firm is proud to have one of our esteemed partners author a book entitled "Agriculture Law In Canada." As farmers continue to diversify and evolve alongside the agribusiness sector as a whole, introducing new practices such as wind and solar green energy initiatives and FIT (Feed-in Tariff) programs, Brimage Law remains dedicated to meeting the industry's legal needs now and for years to come.

The best place for farms to turn for legal help is the firm with deep agricultural roots. Call Brimage today.
