Farms and estates

With a national reputation for advising farmers and landowners, we have an in-depth understanding of the issues faced by the rural community and food industry.

Overview

Landed estates, farms and their associated rural businesses have developed rapidly in recent years and continue to face new challenges as the demand for high quality, traceable produce and widening European controls increase.

With a national reputation for advising farmers and landowners, we have an in-depth understanding of the issues faced by the rural community and food industry. Our clients range from families who have occupied their estates for generations to new entrants such as lifestyle buyers, farmers from overseas and institutional investors.

Many of our lawyers come from rural backgrounds and are highly-regarded for their no-nonsense, pragmatic approach and for getting things done quickly and efficiently.

We can help with a wide range of legal issues including:

  • Sale and purchase of farmland and estates
  • General property law including landlord/tenant matters and planning issues
  • Personal estate and tax planning in relation to wealth preservation
  • Business re-organisations
  • Employment issues
  • Diversification projects such as renewable energy ventures
