• Our corporate legal team have a long track record for working as advisers to, and in partnership with, agricultural businesses. These are often incorporated as private limited companies with family members being the shareholders and directors.

    We understand that farms and estates are not just businesses; they are homes and often financial centres for extended families. Understanding both the commercial and the cultural aspects of farming as well as the wider agricultural sector is essential to providing an effective legal service.

    Why choose Brachers?

    Our highly regarded and approachable Corporate team advises a broad range of clients from owner-managed businesses to multi-national corporations and we have a particular understanding of the needs of agricultural and rural businesses.

    We have all the knowledge and expertise you will need to help you run your company successfully. For example, you might decide to incorporate your business as a limited liability company or a limited liability partnership, or you may wish to enter into a joint venture with another business.

    We can advise on all of these structures, and provide and negotiate all the relevant documentation (for example shareholders’ agreements, bespoke articles of association, non-disclosure agreements, and joint venture agreements).

    How we can help

    You may need to restructure your business as it grows, or buy another complimentary business and we can advise on these transactions, as well as advising you on the legal aspects of raising capital to fund them. If you are planning to retire or sell the business then we also have a great deal of experience in helping business owners to exit.
