There’s so much variety in agricultural work, and that’s what keeps my job so rewarding and satisfying. As an agriculture and rural affairs lawyer, I work with all types of clients ranging from farm businesses, to landed estates, to individuals.
I work hard for all my clients, reply promptly to all communication, and find creative solutions to any issues which may arise. I am known for offering practical advice in simple terms, being approachable, and being proactive.
My work is extremely varied, including the sales, purchases, charges of rural properties, the preparation and advice on rural tenancies, overage and reservation of covenants, rights of way and easements, family and succession planning, and much more.
It will come as no surprise to hear that outside of the office I remain passionate about the environment and animal welfare. I am also a School Governor at a local primary school.
Fellow of the Agricultural Law Association.
