Agriculture and Rural Law
Family Law in Rural Business
Helping you to decide the best way forward for your circumstances.
Our family law experts work with agricultural clients in a broad range of circumstances. We assist clients in a holistic manner, working collaboratively with colleagues across our firm and with clients’ land agents and accounts teams to ensure that we fully understand the intricacies of the farming business.
A relationship breakdown can be an emotional and difficult time and our practical, sympathetic and understanding approach enables our clients to move forward. We also advise on wealth protection matters in the form of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. Whether clients are seeking advice on divorce, financial issues or matters involving children, we work closely with clients to explore the best way to help resolve issues.
Our wealth of experience means we are sensitive to the wide range of problems that can arise in a divorce or separation when farms or agricultural business interests are involved. For example, we know the distress that can be caused when a farm or business that has been in a family for generations, or is intended for future generations, needs to be sold to meet the financial demands of a divorce. Similarly, we always ensure the impact upon other family or business members who may be involved is taken into consideration.
Divorce can be complex and costly, but dealing with the financial aspects through the courts isn’t always the quickest or most effective choice. Our team of mediators and collaborative lawyers means we can offer alternative dispute resolutions to our clients.
We help clients to achieve constructive and practical solutions whilst also minimising the impact of this stressful period on all concerned.
We have one of the largest team of specialist family lawyers in the South East based in Maidstone and Canterbury who have many years’ experience of acting for farmers and land-based businesses and can advise you on all aspects of family law.
