Agriculture & estates

Because most of our team are from a farming background, we see issues from an insider’s perspective; we therefore understand the pressures clients face and work together with agents, estate and farm managers to provide cost-effective solutions.

 

We act for landed estates, trust and farming companies, families, and charities with agricultural properties and interests. We also represent overseas purchasers and other foreign-based investors.

 

We handle purchases and sales, contract farming, share farming agreements, tenancy issues, property rights, plus agricultural, residential and commercial leases. We also give expert advice on development, overage arrangements and diversification.

 

Our team helps to set up companies and partnerships, and assists businesses with commercial contracts and employment.

 

Meanwhile, individuals appreciate our help with estate and tax planning, family trusts, the structuring of acquisitions and land holdings, and employment contracts or employment issues.

 

Whatever their position, we take time to understand your specific aims and concerns. We also get to know them as people: we provide a personal service with a single point of contact.

 

Our lawyers make complex processes simple, explain legal processes clearly, and provide expert advice that considers commercial realities carefully.
