The Vankleek Hill office of SKS Law services a unique real estate niche market – agriculture. Legal advisors to farm owners must understand the distinct aspects of agribusiness in order to provide them with the tools necessary to grow their business. Our legal team has extensive experience in agricultural lending and agribusiness. We will work collaboratively with our firm's corporate and estates group to assist farmers with the real estate components of their estate and succession planning.
