Legal Services for Agricultural Businesses

Those that live and work in the agricultural sector appreciate the special characteristics that distinguish agricultural businesses from those in other industries.

Agricultural businesses need lawyers who understand the specialised nature of their operations whether that be to advise on tenancy issues that arise from farm leaseholds, succession issues arising out of family owned farms or cash flow problems caused by disease or the weather.

We have both commercial and private client lawyers as well as financial advisers with wide experience of acting for rural based businesses and business people. We deal regularly with:

But don't take our word for it. Read what our clients have to say:

 "Most of us only contact solicitors when it's essential or unavoidable and when we do, we tend to complain about exorbitant costs or slow service. When appointing Pearson's to act on my behalf, I entrusted them to deal with a subject I had no experience of at all, that of purchasing agricultural land. Having a specialist in such a subject and the supporting staff able to answer every query, allay my concerns and keep me updated, I found Karen Piontek and Alison Brown to be extremely professional, efficient and totally committed to my best interests. Costs were explained prior to their appointment and the only financial surprises were from third parties, which didn't increase their own fees.

In writing this testimonial, I can only respond to my own experience and state that I would have no hesitation is recommending or reappointing Pearson's if the need arises again."
