Agriculture Law

We’re in your muddy corner

Family, farms and business are intrinsically linked in the agriculture and rural affairs sector

The legal requirements of the agricultural sector can be complex and you need a team who are real experts in agriculture law – lawyers that understand and have experience of the issues affecting you and your business.

Our agriculture law team supports and advises farmers, landowners, producers, landlords and tenants on all types of issues affecting this vibrant and challenging sector.

Our agriculture team can support on all aspects of property law, commercial development opportunities, commercial diversification, family law including wills and succession planning, farming partnerships, contract law, employment law, immigration law, energy and renewables, financial company and taxation law. (possibly a icon list like we do on energy, education)

Our team also includes litigation specialists ensuring that when a dispute arises, over such things as boundaries, family issues or land, we have the skills and experience to ensure you are properly protected and we keep the bigger picture in mind.

Led by Peter Snodgrass, our agriculture specialists are able to tailor a service offering to fit your needs

"I seek to get to the nub of my clients’ concerns and interests and to find the most straightforward way of achieving an outcome that reflects those concerns and interests."

Why not take our free healthcheck survey?

A regular review of your business and family affairs is good practice – circumstances and business goals change over time. We want to help you review your current arrangements and highlight any areas when further advice, support or action could be beneficial or be required to ensure you meet your objectives and have peace of mind that all arrangements are up to date.

Completing the questionnaire below will give our team a little background to help identify any potential areas of concern/support that we can then discuss with you.
