& Farming

Clients in commercial agriculture come to us from around the country for our specialist legal advice and unique access to EU policymakers.


Our agricultural and farming expertise is recognised nationally, with services ranging from advice on restructuring your business to guidance on the effects of post-Brexit legislation and policy on commercial interests.

If you run a business in the agricultural sector, the period leading up to the UK’s exit from the EU will bring major challenges and much uncertainty. Throughout that period we will have close contact with policymakers both in the UK and in Brussels and we will be well placed to advise business in the new environment for UK agriculture.

We can also advise on environmental issues, and how they can impact your venture.

In addition, we have a positive relationship with Defra (the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs), be assured however that this never stops us from arguing our clients’ interests, and taking arguments to the courts in the UK and to the European Court of Justice.

Our team in Ipswich, Suffolk, works with clients nationally. Whatever your legal issue, feel free to share your concerns with us.

Contact us, we are here to help.
