Our roots in the rural community were established in and around Bishop’s Stortford over 100 years ago. From this we have expanded to 5 offices based in 3 counties and our lawyers have an excellent reputation nationwide.
We’ve helped many farming families navigate the complex relationship between business, land and family interests. Our highly experienced rural team has a deep understanding of the fabric of the countryside and we can help you with your farming business. Whether you need advice on succession planning, boundary disputes, employees or ways to maximise your return from the land - we can help.
Generation after generation
Whether your farming business is large or small, we can give you the benefit of our unrivalled expertise. We’ve represented generation after generation of people within farming families. We invest in our junior solicitors to make sure the skills and relationships that are the bedrock of Tees, carry forward to the next generation. With over 20 lawyers including 5 partners in our rural team, you can be sure there is always a lawyer available to focus on your interests. We deliver technical expertise for our farming and landowning clients and developers, on a vast array of issues including: the acquisition and disposal of development sites, promotion and option agreements, joint ventures and collaboration agreements. We excel in the technical aspects of funding development sites and we are panel members and advisers to major lenders in this area of work.
