At A Glance

Agriculture businesses are a unique and special part of Alberta’s business community. Our experienced team at Walsh provides farmers and their families with the bespoke legal advice they need. From taxes and banking to business succession planning, our team at Walsh has a depth of experience and understanding that’s almost unparalleled.

To Us, It’s Personal

At Walsh, we pride ourselves on taking clients’ hopes, dreams, and challenges on as our own. That’s because to us, the law isn’t about the courtroom – it’s about people. Nowhere is this more true than in our Agriculture Law practice. In fact, several Walsh lawyers have been and are currently active farmers – which means to us, your agriculture business is personal.

As a full-service law firm, with a unique perspective on Albertan agriculture, Walsh can handle every aspect of your agribusiness legal needs, including business structure, succession planning, regulatory issues, day-to-day operations, and financing.

Business Succession Planning

Running a farm isn’t a 9-5. It’s a life’s work, and it deserves careful care and consideration when it’s time to pass it on. Walsh’s agriculture law practice has a team experienced in business and succession planning, including tax planning, business structure, intergenerational succession, and business/asset transfers.
