Family farming matters

Russell Reeves to join expert panel for Farmers Weekly ‘Question Time’ webinar.

Thrings partner Russell Reeves will be one of three members of an expert panel at Farmers Weekly’s free-to-attend Business Clinic Family Farm Question Time webinar which takes place later this week.

Russell, who is head of Agricultural Litigation at the firm, will be on hand to answer questions on Thursday afternoon (20 January) as the panel explores and gives advice on common legal, management and insurance problems, disputes, decisions and issues facing farmers.

His presentation will focus on typical issues he encounters when dealing with a family farm business. This will be followed by the Q&A section of the webinar, with Russell set to cover topics such as partnership agreements, succession planning and inheritance.

Russell will take his seat on the three-person panel alongside Ross Kent, rural partner at property consultancy Carter Jonas, and Freddie Braithwaite-Exley, account Executive at A-Plan Rural Insurance.

The online discussion will be hosted by Farmers Weekly business editor, Suzie Horne. Earlier this week, Suzie reported that the farming magazine has already registered 230 delegates to attend the webinar.

As one of the largest and most experienced teams of agricultural specialist lawyers in the UK, Thrings’ experts are regular contributors to the Farmers Weekly Business Clinic feature, which covers a wide range of legal issues raised by the farming community across the UK.

This week’s webinar is the second to be organised and hosted by Farmers Weekly as part of its Business Clinic series. It follows last September’s discussion on diversification, an event which featured Thrings’ Jonathan Thompson on the panel of experts.
