Jonathan MathersGreene & Greene

The agricultural and rural affairs practice at Greene & Greene in Bury St Edmunds has a diverse client base that ranges from long-established estate owners to new investors. It frequently handles farm sales, Settled Land Act matters, tenancies and succession planning. Lead partner Jonathan Mathers is a key adviser to farming partnerships and companies, trusts, investors and charities. Property specialist Hugo Greer-Walker advised Viscountess Marcia Blakenham and The Honourable Caspar Hare on the complex sale of part of their estate to facilitate a large warehouse development on neighbouring land which is being built on the A14 corridor. The sale had to balance the interests of the Scottish Power wind turbine scheme and the adjoining glasshouse agricultural business.
