Agriculture and estates

Within: Agriculture and estates

Alexandra Sarkis and Peter Robinson lead the team at Hunters Law LLP that advises on a wide range of contentious and non-contentious rural and agricultural business and property matters. The group acts for some 90 landed estates which include a mix of tenanted and ‘in hand’ farms that are spread across the country from Northumberland to Wales. A number of these clients have heritage properties that are open to the public. The team has particular expertise in advising on the structuring of the ownership of these estates through partnerships, companies and trusts, and has significant expertise in complex generation and succession planning issues. In addition, the department works regularly with its art practice to provide contentious and non-contentious advice on matters ranging from provenance disputes and heritage property tax matters, through to the movement of fine art and chattels. James Vernor-Miles is another recommended member of the team.
