In recent years, the agricultural sector of Michigan’s economy has become increasingly significant – particularly in connection with food production operations.  Our attorneys represent agricultural clients located not only in the Muskegon area, but throughout all of Michigan and in other states. Our clients range in size from modest to multi-million dollar operations.  In addition to being growers, some of these clients own and conduct food production operations on their properties.  The agricultural sector of our economy operates in a heavily regulated and frequently changing environment.  It is imperative that we keep our clients up-to-date on new or pending legislation that will impact their operations.  We have established relationships with state representatives and we regularly monitor proposed and pending legislation so we can proactively inform our clients and permit them to react accordingly.

In addition to assisting in the purchase and sale of farming operations and the purchase, sale or lease of vacant land, we offer our clients general legal services in connection with their daily farming operations, and which are common to all business owners.

Michigan Underground Storage Tank Cleanup Fund Amended – Elimination of Buy-Downs for Small UST Owners and Retroactive Reduction in Deductibles
Posted on January 3, 2017
2016 closed out with some good news for underground storage tank (UST) owners in Michigan. On December 21, 2016, Governor Snyder signed House Bill 5599 into law (PA 380 of 2016), amending UST corrective action funding provisions of Part 215 of Michigan’s Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act (NREPA), 1994 PA 451, as amended.
