Agriculture & rural issues

It is unsurprising that some of the country's strongest agricultural law practices are to be found in rural regions. Clients include farmers, landowners and rural businesses such as stables, feed manufacturers, large dairies, farmers' co-operatives, insurers and banks. Some firms excel in relation to ancient trusts and estates (think about how much land is owned by Oxbridge colleges, for example); others have spin-off practices that cater cleverly to this type of client (how about expertise in relation to farmers' divorces?). Advice is commonly sought in relation to agricultural tenancies and other kinds of property law; wills, trusts and partnership law; EU subsidies and other regulations; plus general company and commercial matters.
