Partner & Head of Agriculture
Peter advises his farming and landowning clients on a wide variety of matters from partnerships to agricultural tenancies.
Peter has specialised in farms and rural land since doing his articles at Burges Salmon. He has worked in the Midlands for the last 22 years, advising on all aspects of rural property and farm partnerships.
He has a particular specialism in tenancies governed by the Agricultural Holdings Act 1986, as well as farm business tenancies.
Peter leads our agricultural team alongside Richard Thorpe. The team deal with land purchases, options, promotion agreements, rights over land and all kinds of agricultural disputes.
Clients include the National Farmers’ Union, National Grid, landowning estates and charitable trusts.
Peter is Secretary and a trustee to the Addington Fund, a charity dedicated to assisting farmers in times of extreme pressure on their businesses.
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.
