From our offices in Caithness and Edinburgh, our work in this sector covers a broad range of agricultural business and rural property matters including agricultural leases, crofting, and the purchase and sale of property. We also have experience of assisting clients, developers and lenders with opportunities for diversification, for example in wind farm developments.
In addition to advising on the property aspects of this area of practice, we are able to use the firm’s experience in corporate practice to advise agricultural and rural businesses on the different options available for the structure of a particular business. This can be of particular importance where clients are looking to plan for the future by taking family members into a business, or where a business is looking to embark on a new venture. Finally we are also able to draw on the firm’s expertise in commercial litigation, advising clients in relation to boundary and access disputes, rent arrears, tenancy disputes and evictions, and debt recovery matters. Our solicitors within the litigation team have excellent mediation and negotiation skills, avoiding resolution in court where necessary. However if a court resolution is required, we have a wealth of experience in both the Sheriff Court, Lands Tribunal and Court of Session, allowing us to fully advise our clients in order to make the right decisions.
We take the time to get to know our clients in order to customise our services to meet their exact requirements. Whether our clients are landowners, tenants, companies, trusts or individuals we make sure that we understand not only the property issues but also our clients’ aims and objectives and the issues that matter to them. We advise our clients in plain English, highlighting opportunities and potential pitfalls alike and allowing our clients to make informed decisions.
We are approachable and responsive. We take a pragmatic approach and aim to make life easier for our clients. We also recognise the importance of working closely with our clients’ other advisers to ensure that we deliver the best possible outcome, quickly and cost-effectively.
