When a client faced a time-sensitive right-of-way issue, they turned to Agriculture and Estates Partner Rory Hutchings for sound legal advice. Relations between the parties as neighbours had deteriorated, and Rory’s client had not been well-advised by her solicitors. This meant Rory and the team had to act urgently to protect the client’s position and to move the case to mediation.

Rory attended a 10-hour mediation and was were able to help his client to resolve the dispute on terms that she was happy with, dispose of the proceedings and avoid adverse costs. The settlement has also added value to the farm.
