As an agricultural lawyer, I have a huge interest in the work I carry out as well as farming in general. My clients have included a variety of diverse farming businesses including livestock, arable and dairy farms, agricultural cooperatives, certification organisations, agricultural shows and tourist enterprises.
I take the time to understand my clients on a personal level, and get to know their needs as agricultural businesses. I provide pragmatic, jargon-free advice as a trusted advisor, and will always try and make myself available to fit the farming day, including out-of-hours and weekends where necessary.
My specialisms include agricultural contract issues, public and private rights of way, land disputes, common land, partnership disputes, joint venture agreements, the Agricultural Holdings Act 1986 and the Agricultural Tenancies Act 1995.
Outside of work I enjoy mountain biking and spending time with my family. We also have a smallholding.

My frequently asked questions
How much will it cost?
Often a problem will seem daunting and cost of course is an issue. Each case is different – we will be able to give you a better idea of costs once we know all the detail – and we’ll give you a clear estimate for initial work and advice.
How long will it take?
This depends on what you want to achieve and how much your case progresses.
Will I win?
We will spend time to understand your objectives so we can advise you on the most effective course of action. We will advise on prospects so that you can make commercial decisions taking into account cost and risks.
