Information for farmers

The pace of change in agricultural law is ever-increasing, and the amount of new regulation is greater and more complex than ever. With recent issues arising from Brexit, COVID and COP26 there has never been a greater need than now for farmers to get the best specialist legal advice.

Thrings’ agriculture team has been giving sector-focused legal advice to those in farming for over three hundred years. Our free Legal Health Check is specially designed for farms and agricultural businesses to help identify areas where legal advice may be needed.

SPECIALIST INFORMATION FOR RURAL BUSINESSES

At Thrings, our Agricultural team supports a vast range of agricultural and diversifying businesses, helping the rural economy to thrive.

During COP26, members of the team will be using this page to share their insights, helpful guides and information about some of the key environmental topics associated with their specialisms.

We have strong connections in the industry, including the NFU, CLA, TFA and other trade organisations.

We are the NFU’s appointed legal panel firm for seven counties in the South East - Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Oxfordshire, Surrey and West Sussex – and we regularly meet NFU County Advisers, Group Secretaries and NFU members.

Our lawyers speak at legal conferences including BIAC and the Oxford Farming Conference as well as providing legal content for publications such as Farmers Weekly, Farmers Guardian and British Farmer and Grower.

We take a collaborative approach, working closely with our clients, their professional advisors and other members of our specialist agriculture team. As one of the largest agriculture teams in the country, we have experienced expert lawyers to advise you on all matters concerning your farm including property, planning, renewables, diversification, tax and estate planning, agri-business, employment and litigation.

Most importantly of all, we are here to support and advise our farming clients, identifying the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead and enabling them to grow their business for future generations.
