Miles Coates


Miles is a solicitor specialising in agricultural property and rural land. Miles spent several years at a major international firm in the City of London, before returning home to East Anglia in 2016 to focus on his agricultural clients. In May 2022 Miles became a partner at Barker Gotelee.

Miles is regularly instructed on the largest farm, estate and equestrian transactions in the region, and aims to deliver a market-leading service to his clients. He also acts for a substantial number of landowners affected by major infrastructure projects. He advises on the full range of agricultural and rural property matters, including sales and purchases, agricultural tenancies, infrastructure, diversification and the sale of land to developers.

Miles says: “My legal practice reflects my passion for the countryside and rural life, and my belief in building lasting relationships with clients and their other professional advisers, in order to support them in all their business and personal affairs.”

Miles is a keen horse-rider in his spare time.

“Miles understands agriculture and is a genuine specialist.” – Chambers & Partners, 2022
