Leading Juniors

William Batstone - Guildhall ChambersHe is amazing. My go-to barrister in relation to agricultural disputes including partnerships, proprietary estoppel, agricultural tenancies, and agricultural estates. He is truly brilliant in terms of his expertise in the law but also in terms of his approach to the case. Calm and pragmatic. In addition to his technical brilliance, he never loses sight of the need for the client to understand what is being argued and why.
Christopher Jones - St John's ChambersHe is easy to work with and is liked by clients. He understands agricultural issues and is able to therefore hit the ground running on new cases we bring him.
Alex Troup - St John's ChambersConfidence and expertise in this area; on top of the law; turnaround times are generally impressive; very approachable; good with clients.

Agriculture in Regional Bar

St John's Chambers

The team at St John’s Chambers is regularly instructed in cases involving contentious probate, property disputes and trusts and estates work, to name a few areas of expertise within the agricultural space. Leslie Blohm QC has an excellent reputation for handling proprietary estoppel cases. Turning to the set’s juniors, Alex Troup is very experienced in advising on inheritance disputes concerning farmland estates, while Christopher Jones is active in tenancy disputes.



‘For contentious probate and disputes St John’s Chambers have a very strong team – definitely strength in depth. They were also quick off the mark in response to Covid offering email updates and Zoom webinars very quickly into the remote world/new working from home conditions – they seemed to be ahead of the rest on this.’

‘A strong set that covers a wide range of practice areas.’


Very efficient.

Excellent, professional, swift and informed.
