Agriculture and rural estates


With nearly 70% of the land in the UK being categorised as agricultural we recognise the vital role that this sector plays in the economy and the importance to the country as a whole. Our team is embedded in the rural community and understands the needs and challenges of rural landowners and tenants. 

Our team has both regional and national expertise and are able to provide clients with tailor-made agricultural legal advice. With our presence in the City of London, we are also extensively involved in investment opportunities and management of owned land.

We are a leading practice in agriculture and rural affairs, advising landed estates, landowners, farm tenants, and mortgage lenders. Our team works closely with our Private Wealth, Employment and Corporate departments to offer a full service to support farmers, rural businesses and landowners. We have developed an outstanding reputation for our ability to understand the needs and provide solutions for this specialised market.

Our experience covers buying and selling farms or farmland, negotiating rights of way including water and drainage agreements and access for telecommunications, restrictive covenants on farm land and advising on all aspects of agricultural tenancies, buying stables, paddocks and other rural property as well as estate planning and sporting rights.

We have placed ourselves at the forefront of the changes facing the agricultural and landowning sector and are working closely with prominent organisations and clients to lead the way through diversification and utilisation of technology.
