Agriculture, estates, farming & rural business

Agricultural and countryside issues can be complex and require specialist knowledge and legal skills.

Being located in Newcastle upon Tyne means that we are surrounded by the most beautiful and sparsely populated countryside in England. We understand rural land ownership, farming, agribusiness and all aspects surrounding it. We combine our expertise and understanding with a personal approach to get to know you and your business and to ensure you avoid the traps and pitfalls that await our clients.

We have fantastic relationships with local rural accountants, land agents, banks and other rural professionals and enjoy working as a team with your other professionals to achieve the right result for you.

In addition, we have retained our private client focus and the large private client team is key to the ethos of the firm, advising clients over several generations. This long term, family focused approach is ideally suited to the rural sector with its multi-generational businesses.

The team is headed up by Tom Wills a Fellow of the Agricultural Law Association (FALA) who is a frequent writer in the local rural press and who would be happy to hear from you with any enquiries or assistance you may need.

If you would like any further information or to discuss any rural related matter, please contact Tom Wills, head of the agriculture & estates department at Sintons.
