Agricultural Disputes

Agricultural disputes can be intrinsically complex in that they can often overlap a number of practice areas. In the Litigation and Dispute Resolution team, we work closely with our colleagues who deal in commercial property, business and commercial work, estate planning and trusts to offer tailor-made rounded solutions that work for you.

We act for farmers, landowners and agricultural business specialists in a wide range of disputes including agricultural tenancies and occupation, estate management, land ownership, agricultural partnerships, supply and contract disputes, succession disputes (for example upon death) - and the fallout that can arise over boundary issues with neighbours and about rights of way and access to land.

We represent clients in the High Court, County Court and at Tribunal. Where necessary we work closely with carefully selected, skilled barristers and industry recognised experts.

Where appropriate we explore alternative means of dispute resolution (ADR) at the outset and throughout the life of a claim (even once a claim has been issued). If mediation offers the best chance of achieving a successful resolution, we will refer clients to trusted, accredited mediators.

We are transparent about costs and whenever possible we look to recover them on your behalf.

Initial Consultation

We offer initial consultations to new clients at significantly reduced rates. We follow up on face-to-face advice in writing. Our aim is to give you the perspective you need to make an informed decision about how to move forward. We are happy to have an initial phone discussion (without obligation on you) to ascertain how best we can assist.

What we offer

Our experienced and skilled litigators will support and guide you through the dispute resolution process in a professional manner. We focus on resolving disputes quickly and proportionately without the need to resort to the expense of litigation if it can be avoided. If a court ordered remedy is the only realistic solution, we will ensure you get the advice and assistance you need.

We will listen to you and work out what you want to achieve. We aim to deliver your objective in a way you understand, one that offers commercial value and that will allow you to move on.

We represent clients in a variety of matters using carefully selected barristers and a range of trusted experts to assist in case investigation.
