Agricultural family issues

Thrings’ Family Law Team works closely with our nationally recognised Agriculture Team. As a result, our family lawyers have a thorough understanding of the industry-specific challenges facing those who work in, or are affected by, the agriculture sector.

We understand that family issues can be especially complicated for those involved in agriculture because, for many farmers and owners of farming businesses, life and work are inextricably mixed - especially as so many live where they work. We will work closely with you to help you to provide for and to protect your family, your business, your assets and your future.

Our Family lawyers are robust and experienced negotiators, tacticians and, if needs be, litigators. We work closely with our colleagues in the wills, tax and trusts, commercial law, and commercial property teams, as well as with our clients’ other professional advisors, to find creative, tax-effective strategies which will allow the farm or farming business to continue, while providing for the separating husband or wife, and other parties/members of the family.

Family law now is so much broader than simply the end of a couple’s relationship. It’s about beginnings as well as endings, about families and businesses, about individuals as well as couples. In short, it’s about helping you to create, manage, or to preserve the life, the business and the future that you have, or want your family to have.
