Agriculture & Rural Business
We know one side of the fence from the other
Our team of specialist lawyers has a deep understanding of the commercial and legal issues affecting the agriculture, landed estate and rural business sector. We make sure we never 'sit on the fence' and will work with you to deliver the outcome you want to achieve.
Agriculture and rural business is an important economic sector to the UK, and significantly so within the South West. Our experts have both regional and national experience, with a breadth and depth of knowledge of both high-value and complex matters. We work collaboratively within the firm and with our clients' other professional advisers to bring in expertise in all areas of law, ensuring the best legal and commercial solutions are achieved every time.
Through our understanding of the rural economy and the factors that drive it; the issues it faces and the opportunities available to it, our expertise gives us a unique understanding of the pressures faced by agriculture and rural businesses today. Furthermore, we are the only firm in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset recommended by both the Legal 500 and Chambers. We are also on the NFU panel of solicitors for Devon and Cornwall, and NFU members are entitled to a discount on our fees.
