What can I do for you?

I am a partner in our agriculture & estates team. I act for landowners on strategic land transactions such as collaboration and promotion agreements as well as options, pre-emptions and overage agreements. I also advise on rural diversification projects and on general agricultural real estate issues. 

Supporting my clients' objectives

Commercial pressures on farmers and landowners have inevitably led them to consider diversification. They are no longer limiting their activities to pure farming, but are seeking to maximise the value of their land and other assets through alternative uses. These range from AD plants and PV projects through to releasing, or pooling land with others for potential development, or perhaps the conversion of existing agricultural buildings for commercial storage, light industrial use, educational projects, craft centres and farm shops.

My experience of advising landowners (and developers) on such matters means that I understand and can anticipate the potential pitfalls and traps which if not dealt with properly can adversely impact on the deliverability and costs of such projects.

What do others say?

I have a good relationship with my clients built by having a clear understanding of their particular business and project needs helping me to share with them the "bigger picture". This allows me to offer them sensible pro-active commercial advice pertinent to their goals and ambitions and to identify and solve real issues.
