Agriculture and Rural Affairs

The agricultural sector is unique in many ways and demands legal expertise across a very broad spectrum of legal disciplines. Our specialist agricultural team at Harrison Clark Rickerbys has close links with the agricultural and rural communities of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire, the surrounding counties as well as further afield.

Many members of the Agriculture and Rural Affairs team are from farming backgrounds and live in the wider rural business community. We have a thorough understanding of the issues and challenges facing the sector. We pride ourselves on providing practical and commercial advice and understand the importance of building and developing long term working relationships with our clients.

We also know that our clients expect a personal and effective service to be delivered at a price that is both fair and reasonable. We provide specialist advice at fees that are both transparent and competitive from the outset.

Harrison Clark Rickerbys offers the agricultural and rural sector a complete legal approach to the challenges and opportunities the sector faces. We will always work in partnership with you and your established advisers, be that accountants, bank managers, consultants or land agents.
