KKC's founder, Robert F. Kahan, was born and raised on a Vernon farm. When he began his private practice in 1964, Vernon and the surrounding communities were experiencing substantial residential growth. As land development continued and expanded into commercial and industrial uses, KKC expanded its legal and technical staff to assist not only its farmer clients but also the land developers who came to the area to develop local properties. 

KKC remains very active with the farm community through our representation of the local Farm Credit lending agency and as a member and advisor to the local Farm Bureau. However, our client base has grown to include local and national companies who seek to develop property and expand their business presence in our service area, where KKC offers the experience and resources necessary to assist in bringing about the most desirable result.
