Commercial Law for Farming and Commercial Agriculture 

 

Farming is a way of life, but it’s also a business - and a very tough business at that. It’s important to have an experienced team of agricultural solicitors with expert legal advice on hand who can guide you through the various commercial law issues and legal regulations that come your way.

There are numerous reasons for needing agricultural law, expert advice during the course of running a farming business, whether it’s an agreement with another farm to share machinery or agricultural vehicles, to taking your son or daughter into partnership in the business.

Then there are the various diversification activities that many farmers are now turning to, which could require advice about business contracts, as well as renewable energy projects, including solar panels and biodigesters.

Many of the solicitors in Lanyon Bowdler’s agricultural team are from a farming background themselves, so understand the pressures of the industry. As a firm, we are proud of our approachable and down-to-earth style and won’t bamboozle you with legal jargon.
