In recent years, the agricultural sector of Michigan’s economy has become increasingly significant¾particularly in connection with food production operations. The Muskegon-based attorneys at Gielow Groom Terpstra & McEvoy not only represent agricultural clients in the Muskegon area, but throughout Michigan and other states. Our clients range in size from modest startups 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.

Our attorneys can assist in the purchase and sale of farming operations and the purchase, sale, or lease of vacant land. Furthermore, in addition to assisting with legal services pertaining to daily farming operations, we can also offer clients general legal assistance with those daily operational needs common to all business owners.
