We work with our agriculture clients to deliver technical expertise across all our legal and financial disciplines which includes advising on:
Whether your farming business is large or small, we can give you the benefit of our unrivalled expertise. With over 30 lawyers including ten partners in our agriculture and land team, you can be sure there is always a lawyer available to focus on your interests.
We liaise closely with your other professional advisers to ensure you receive the best and most comprehensive advice, which also anticipates future challenges you may face.
Our lawyers have particular expertise in dealing with the specific challenges faced in owner-managed businesses as well as a strong reputation for advising on high-value and complex transactions including some of the above areas such as company reorganisations, share and asset sales and corporate financing arrangements.
We work with our clients from start-up through to growth, and in some cases on to sale. Wherever you are in the cycle, we have the knowledge and expertise to help you prosper.
Tees people are local people and building strong working relationships is at the heart of our business. We ensure our own succession planning is constantly reviewed and invest in our junior solicitors to make sure the skills and relationships that have been the bedrock of Tees for over 100 years carry forward to the next generation.
We pride ourselves on taking the time to get to know you and your circumstances and goals. It’s an approach we know works. Many of our clients have been with us for many years, enjoying not only this personal, committed approach, but also the honest, straightforward and jargon-free nature of everything we do.
We are consistently recommended by a number of nationally recognised land agents, as well as the NFU and CLA, as experts in our disciplines. We are one of only 16 law firms on the NFU national panel – recognition for the outstanding quality of our service and expert knowledge. We cover Hertfordshire, Essex and Suffolk under this scheme.
The NFU LAS is a helpline, based at NFU HQ and staffed exclusively by specialist NFU advisers. It provides financial support, professional guidance and a contribution towards professional costs for members facing legal disputes relating to their business as farmers or growers – and it’s extremely popular with 90% of NFU members subscribing to it.
Specific legal or technical matters are transferred to experts in their particular field - and for legal issues, that’s where we at Tees come in.
If you need help and are insured with the NFU and your subscription includes membership of the LAS, contact us today. Partner Caroline Metcalf runs the LAS scheme and can discuss your case with you.
Our FREE legal health check is a chance to talk through any changes in your circumstances and plans for the future, with a specialist legal or financial expert on hand to advise you.

We will visit you at your premises and undertake a review of your farming business to:
Following our meeting we will provide you with a summary of the points discussed and our recommendations in addressing the issues raised.

As a flexible and technologically-adept firm, we already had many home-working systems in place. We have now rolled this technology out to all our employees working for clients, so they can continue to work normally - and from home.
If you are a client, please be assured you can get in touch with Tees and we are still working on your case. To replace face-to-face meetings, we have the facilities to do video-conferencing, conference calls or just speak on the phone, as you need.
Due to the circumstances, please call us if you would have wanted a home visit, and we can organise the best and safest way of being in touch.
