Agriculture Law

At Lodders, our Agriculture law team understands how the countryside works.

We have one of the largest and most experienced agriculture law teams in the region, many of whom have first-hand experience of the wide ranging needs of those who live and work in the countryside, whether they are farmers, landowners or diversified rural businesses.

Our team is respected nationally for our breadth of expertise and approachable, hands on manner. We give fast, cost effective legal and business advice to farmers, landowners and trustees across England and Wales, offering expert advice on all rural matters by combining the talents of our practitioners in the agricultural, private client, real estate and business departments.

We have strong ties with the agricultural community and keep up to date by staying actively involved in the industry. Chambers Guide to the UK Legal Profession recognises us as one of the most highly respected agricultural teams in England. In addition to this, James Spreckley, Caroline Nemecek and Jane Senior were all given recommendation in the 2016 West Midlands Legal 500 Rankings, with the team also being listed as ‘Top Tier’.

The rural sector is unique in many ways and demands legal expertise covering a broader spectrum than probably any other area. Many landowners have had to alter their farming practices and diversify, in response to increasing economic and social pressures. Now more than ever before it is crucial to have advisers who really understand the market sector and provide advice individually tailored to personal requirements.

Lodders agriculture law team advises clients on a wide variety of matters, so whether you are buying a country house or planning to leave your farming business to the next generation, we have the specialist knowledge to help. All the team are members of the Agricultural Law Association and we work closely with the Country Land and Business Association. This enables us to keep our clients up to speed on new legislation and policy, as the sector continues to experience rapid change.
