Farming Succession Disputes

Our expert lawyers have wide-ranging experience of advising on farming succession disputes. As a law firm with its roots in the communities of Cornwall and Devon, we understand the unique pressures and challenges faced by farming families and when these lead to disputes about wills and inheritance, we know how to help.

Farms and agricultural businesses have a particular dynamic and it’s important that when there is a dispute, you take expert advice from lawyers who understand the complexities, and the relationships and heritage that shape farming businesses. Family ties often run deep and broken promises or the unexpected consequences of someone’s succession plan can sometimes result in lengthy and expensive litigation. We will take the time to understand your particular situation and explain your legal options, breaking down all the legal jargon along the way so that you are best able to make informed decisions. Our focus will be on helping you to achieve a practical solution to the dispute that protects your interests and can be achieved as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible.

Our team features lawyers who are members of the Agricultural Law Association and who have extensive experience of resolving farming succession disputes. We also have a number of wills and probate-related accreditations and memberships of relevant bodies such as the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and the Association of Contentious Trusts and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS).
