Agriculture Law

At Lodders, our team of agriculture solicitors understands how the countryside works.

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.

We have strong ties with the agricultural community and keep up to date by staying actively involved in the industry. The 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, Mark Lewis, Ian Flavell and Jane Senior were all recognised in the 2017 West Midlands Agriculture and Estates Legal 500 rankings, with the firm as a whole 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.

Each solicitor in Lodders’ agricultural 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.

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.
