Agriculture Law Legal Services

Roythornes is one of the UK's leading agricultural law firms with an in-depth understanding of the issues farmers and landowners face. From our main base in Lincolnshire we provide advice on agricultural law to a wide range of clients from farmers and landowners to corporate investors.

Our agricultural work is undertaken by a team with a national reputation, and highlighted in leading legal guides such as the Legal 500, where we have appeared in the number one slot for agricultural work in the East Midlands for a number of years.

With specialists in property, tax, commercial issues and employment we offer the agricultural sector a complete approach to the challenges and opportunities they face.

Fully committed to the interest of the sector, we have been involved in government consultations, helped to reconcile UK and EU farming and agricultural law and contributed to landmark decisions on milk quotas, time limits, estoppels and land options.

In addition, we are one of the very few law firms within the country who have necessary expertise in agriculture and commercial law to advise on Producer Organisations and other collaborative ventures.

Geography is no issue to the work we do and whilst we are based in Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Nottinghamshire, our agriculture clients cover the whole of the UK, including a growing number in Kent and the South East.

  • Farming tenancies
