Farming is big business with its own unique set of legal issues and the modern farmer requires sophisticated legal assistance to make sound business decisions. With our roots in the Fraser Valley and the local agricultural community, Baker Newby LLP has developed a wealth of experience in agricultural business law matters including taxation, Agricultural Land Commission applications, environmental issues, flooding and drainage matters, quota boards and transactions, farm family estate and succession planning, lending transactions, farm acquisitions and a whole variety of general business law issues.

Committed to Agriculture

Baker Newby LLP is committed to agriculture. To better serve the needs of farmers and agricultural businesses in the Fraser Valley and in British Columbia, Baker Newby LLP has formed an Agriculture Law Group with the specific mandate of better understanding the legal and non-legal issues facing today’s farmers and agriculture businesses. Agriculture lawyers in the group recognize the importance of agriculture to our economy and society understanding that a strong agriculture sector means a strong economy for the Fraser Valley & Province.

Others are actively involved in agriculture related groups such as the BC Landscape & Nursery Association, the Agriculture Committee of the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce, the B.C.
