Cripps strengthens agricultural team
Law firm Cripps has expanded its agriculture and estates team with the lateral hire of Nick Fagg.
Nick has over 30 years experience specialising in rural and agricultural property law and is a Fellow of the Agricultural Law Association. He joins from South East law firm, Rix & Kay and will be working closely with partner Sally Firby advising on the acquisition and sale of rural property and associated issues including agricultural leases, rights of way and development.
Sally said: “We are delighted to welcome Nick to the team. His experience in this area and the breadth of his knowledge will further strengthen our service offering and add to our growing reputation in this sector”.
Cripps’ agriculture and rural affairs team advises a broad range of clients including trust and farming companies, families, estate managers, charities and overseas purchasers. It is consistently ranked in the top band of regional law firms in both Chambers and Legal 500 directories and noted for its strong client relationships.
Nick commented: “Cripps is well-known in the South East for its expertise in agricultural law and I am excited to be joining the team. I am looking forward to supporting, and building upon its strong client base”.
Nick lives in the heart of the East Sussex Weald countryside and in his spare time enjoys sports, gardening, walking, photography and music.
