Wills, Probate and Estate Planning: Expert agriculture lawyers

Undertaking a detailed review of your farm’s activities, we’ll look at the available opportunities and advise on any restructuring that may be necessary to take best advantage of valuable reliefs for tax purposes, usually working in tandem with your own professional advisers.

We often work collaboratively with our expert property and commercial teams where creation of a partnership or company structure is used as a strategy for succession planning, to ensure your farm is best protected for future generations.

  • LPAs – Lasting Power of Attorneys to ensure your affairs, and those of your farming business, can be managed in the event you are unable to act for yourself
  • Tax – inheritance tax and capital gains tax mitigation including providing advice on the application of agricultural and business property reliefs 
  • Probate – administering farming estates and assisting you with the application for Probate
