At Hunters incorporating May, May & Merrimans Peter Robinson  and James Vernor-Miles  are key contacts. The team advises on a wide range of contentious and non-contentious agricultural and landed estates matters and acts for approximately 90 estates stretching from Cornwall to Scotland. These estates range in size from houses with amenity land to large landed estates of several thousands of hectares often with diverse interests such as tenanted farms, residential units, commercial operations as well as renewable energy and historic rights. Highlights included advising a landowning family in Suffolk on a conditional agreement for the sale of a site for development. On this matter there was a separate overage agreement and the sale was also complicated by the fact that it was a joint sale by the firm’s client and another adjoining landowner. The team co-ordinated the drafting and negotiation of the documents between the firm’s client and the co-seller and the buyer. The ‘extremely able and thoroughJonathan Godwin-Austen  advises a broad range of landowners and specialises in trust, estate and tax law in addition to the preservation, management, enhancement and devolution of capital wealth.
