Agriculture & Food Processing Disputes

We advise a large number of clients in the agricultural sector, ranging from small farmers and producers to large farming companies and cooperatives. We also act for food producers both large and small.

As a result of this significant client base we are accustomed to dealing with the disputes that arise from time to time and the particular challenges that occur in this sector. Several of our lawyers are from a farming background and are familiar with farming operations and processes. We also act for a number of substantial food manufacturers.

We have a specialist team dealing with a wide range of regulatory prosecutions including health and safety, food safety and environmental regulation. In addition, listed below are the kinds of matters that can give rise to disputes with which we are very familiar:

  • crop supply
  • faulty machinery
  • negligent advice 
  • defective feed
  • animal husbandry and welfare
  • drainage
  • partnership or company ownership
  • Rural Payment Agency (RPA) payments
  • contract farming
  • food safety.
