We help businesses in the Agriculture Sector with all aspects of running their enterprises; in particular on legal, commercial and regulatory issues surrounding farm management.
We regularly advise rural enterprises on the possibilities available to them so that the business becomes and can remain a sustainable, profitable, risk-managed, effective and efficient enterprise, and help you put those plans into action.
We draw on expertise and knowledge within the firm from across a number of disciplines including corporate and commercial, property, trusts & estates, planning, construction & engineering, financing, employment, environmental and health & safety.
Acquisitions & disposals of farm land
We provide advice on a wide range of areas, including tackling farm land sales and purchases, acquisition rental, rental of residential and agricultural property, farms, land and rural estates and country houses.
Sustainability & Efficiency
Advising farming businesses on their efforts to increase the sustainability and efficiency of their businesses and the legal arrangements that need to be put in place to implement business change, whether that involves the purchase of new plant and machinery or the installation of biomass boilers with innovative funding structures.
Businesses and their owners should ensure that the arrangements in place that govern how the business is run (such as partnership deeds and shareholders’ agreements) reflect the evolving needs of the businesses and the various stakeholders; whether those needs are to encourage joint owners to co-operate, maximise risk management, mitigate tax burdens or gain third party investment.
We are experienced in the granting and acquiring of various rights to engage in rural pursuits, such as fishing and shooting, and advising on the special considerations that apply in respect of the grant and purchase of these rights.
