With a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities in the rural and agricultural sectors in Cornwall and Devon, we are uniquely well-qualified to advise individuals, families, farmers, landowners, and businesses on navigating the complex and changing legal landscape.

Agriculture is the backbone of our region, and we recognise the vital role it plays in sustaining our communities and economy.

We also understand the importance of maximising the value and potential of rural properties through diversification, including renewable energy projects. We can provide valuable advice and guidance on land use, planning considerations, and the legal aspects of diversifying your agricultural business to adapt to changing market demands.
