Landed estates

Landed estates

We act for the owners of over 60 landed estates, which include a mixture of tenanted and in hand farms, and we have been retained by most of our clients over successive generations.

Advising landed estates is a specialist skill, requiring a broad range of legal expertise within the following areas:

  • succession, trust and tax planning
  • property and agricultural law
  • employment law
  • development and planning
  • heritage law and management
  • dispute resolution
  • creation and variation of business structures

There is also a constant need to manage a wide range of personal and professional relationships with sensitivity and care. We are one of the leading providers of legal advice in this sector, ranked in highly in Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.

Private Client Experts

We identify our clients’ needs and tailor our work to each set of circumstances, providing high quality, cost effective advice. We are a multi-disciplinary practice and work collaboratively to provide a comprehensive service across all of our practice areas.
