Farm Law Solicitors

Lanyon Bowdler’s highly skilled team of agricultural solicitors possess an unrivalled knowledge of both the farming industry and the local area, providing exceptional legal representation across all areas of the agricultural and farming sectors.

Expertise and specialism are fundamental in this area of law, and as one of the NFU’s recommended agricultural law firms, Lanyon Bowdler can guarantee expert advice from some of the sector’s leading legal professionals.

Having long delivered services across Shropshire, Herefordshire and beyond, we provide a level of industry knowledge and local insight that is seldom found anywhere else. Many of our solicitors have personal experience of living and working on farms, combining legal expertise with a life-long passion to ensure the very best legal advice for you, your family and your business.

Our Expertise

Lanyon Bowdler offers the full range of legal services for the farming and agricultural industries, helping clients to navigate the vast range of complex legal issues that can arise in areas such as rural land ownership, partnership formation and succession planning.

Our specialist solicitors have an in-depth understanding of farming law and have a thorough knowledge of the most recent legislation and the shifting landscape of the industry. We recognise that rural businesses differ greatly from other commercial enterprises and as such require a different and more tailored approach. We offer a bespoke service to many farmers, agricultural workers, landowners and other rural businesses, and are acutely aware of the need to balance commercial considerations against protecting a way of life or a family home.

It is a priority for us that we help our clients to achieve their business objectives whilst also protecting their existing interests and are currently helping many of our clients to navigate the changes triggered by Brexit.

Legal Services

Lanyon Bowdler has the expertise and experience to deliver excellent results across all areas of the agriculture and farming industry including:

  • Agricultural Conveyancing

Specialist property solicitors who understand the complex legislation and technical issues related to the buying and selling of agricultural property is essential. As full-service solicitors, Lanyon Bowdler is able to draw on a wide-ranging set of expertise and specialisms across all of our departments to ensure you receive a bespoke and individual service.

Family law issues such as divorce and partnerships within the farming industry require well thought out legal advice. Handling such cases involves a myriad of finely balanced judgements and negotiating a prosperous outcome needs a clear-headed and commercial approach from your legal team. This can often be an area where experience counts and we have that in abundance.

We specialise in drafting contracts and advising on business structures to ensure the most effective and efficient outcome for our client and their business.

A farming business typically involves more than one family member and, in some cases, the entire family. We are here to advise businesses within the rural and agricultural sector on all aspects of running their business operations including legal and regulatory issues, farm management and diversification. We also provide advice to landed estates and owners of agricultural businesses with regards to wealth management, succession planning and any other sector-related matters.

  • Succession planning

We are able to help farming families with succession planning advice in order to ensure your business is protected for future generations. We can advise on the most appropriate Will for your circumstances to ensure your assets are passed to the correct people. Making appropriate plans in advance is vital for minimising any tax liabilities and also to reduce the chance of family disputes arising.

  • Tax

Agricultural land has its own unique tax structure but we can help you make sure that you are complying with your obligations and are following the proper procedures. If you own land with the potential for development, we can help you to maximise your return whilst minimising your tax liabilities.
