Rural Sector

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. We have one of the largest and most experienced teams of agricultural solicitors 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, land or property owners or diversified rural businesses.

Our team of experienced solicitors 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. We advise our clients on all rural matters by combining the talents of our practitioners in the agricultural, private client, real estate and business departments.

As a farming business, it is important to have succession plans in place to protect the future of the business for when its ownership changes. Visit our ‘health check’ to see how future-proof your business is and how the team at Lodders can help you to protect it.
