Michael Ward  heads the department at Hibberts LLP  following Edward Nutting's departure. The department is known for its specialist skills in transactions where there is unregistered title and is adept at advising on other matters such as tax planning, options and all types of tenancies, licenses and occupation agreements. The practice also advises on easements, wayleaves, above ground installations and on mineral rights. Highlights included acting for numerous major farming/dairy operators and organisations in relation to their farming businesses and on their diversification needs, and handling complex succession cases for both landlord and tenants. Ward acted in a high-value Inheritance Act claim in the High Court with attendant satellite litigation that revolved around land swaps and the removal of hostile trustees. David Young has retired.
