Agriculture and rural economy

Within the agricultural sector, the pace of change in law is increasing and the amount of new regulation is becoming greater and more complex. With farmers and landowners facing growing challenges, the need for specialist legal advice is more important than ever before.

Our industry-leading Agriculture Team provides advice to farmers, growers, agri-business and other rural enterprises. We act as National Farmers Union panel solicitors for more counties than any other law firm in the country, write articles for various sector publications and are the sole legal contributor to the Farmers Weekly business clinic. We also regularly assist members of the Country Land and Business Association and other organisations.

From advising on land sales and purchases through to rural planning and rights of way, and dealing with a variety of disputes and claims, our excellent track record and reputation make us the go-to law firm on a range of agricultural issues. Whatever concerns or challenges you face, we will apply our experience and knowledge to find practical, commercially-focused solutions that meet your needs and objectives.
