Agriculture

Our Agriculture & Estates team provides a comprehensive range of legal services to farmers, landowners and agri-business specialists that covers all your individual needs.

Agriculture Services for Individuals

We appreciate how complex legal decision-making can be for individuals who work in this sector, and we understand the important of making the right decisions that will affect you and your family in the long term.

We give advice that is timely and proactive, delivered in plain simple language that will help you reach your personal goals.

We have an award-winning Agriculture and Estates Team which is one of the largest and best qualified in the UK. We are frequently recommended by land agents, accountants and advisors across the country who recognise our expertise.

Our team is partner-led, and with many of our people from agricultural backgrounds we speak the same language you do.

Our pricing structure is consistent and we deliver our services in a way which you like to receive them, looking to build long-lasting relationships with our clients.

We pride ourselves on our quick response and proactivity, highlighting problem areas at the start so they can be dealt with early and pragmatically. We respond practically to work to your timescales and ensure that the focus remains on the key issues at hand.  

Our clients include larger UK law firms in need of our specific expertise, which we see as a testament to the specialist service we provide.
