East Central Illinois Agricultural Law Lawyers

Our Illinois Team Understands Agriculture

A farming operation is both a highly sophisticated enterprise and a small and very personal business operation. Farming requires a combination of traditional practices and new technology along with specialized knowledge regarding production, conservation and environmental regulations.

Farmers, now as always, face new opportunities, challenges and questions. How much is my land worth now that farm property values are skyrocketing? How might solar power affect my business? Who can assist me in negotiating and handling agriculture-related transactions?

From the office to the field, the Champaign agricultural law attorneys of Dodd & Maatuka, have experience and backgrounds in farming, and have an interest in contributing to the success of the agricultural industry. Whether your business is a small family farm or a large corporation, our lawyers have the expertise and the resources to provide timely, focused answers to your questions and effective, results-driven legal representation.
