We understand that the agricultural sector is unique, demanding a high level of expertise across a broad spectrum of legal disciplines. That’s why we have a specialist team of agricultural and rural solicitors – many from farming backgrounds and/or living in the rural business community – ready to provide practical and commercial advice within the context of the sector’s challenges and opportunities.
Our dedicated team has close links with the agricultural and rural communities across England and Wales. With decades of sector-specific experience under our belts, we understand that a farmer’s business premises is usually also their family home, and colleagues are often family members. This can throw up a number of complex legal and personal challenges, and we always factor this into the advice we offer. We don’t shy away from high-profile issues, either, having represented large groups of farmers in landmark judicial reviews against government.

What’s more, we work as a wider team and always consider whether you’d would benefit from advice from other areas of the firm.
