A law firm for life

Creating opportunities...

At The McKinstry Company our close and longstanding relationship with the agricultural industry lets us respond quickly and effectively to our clients’ needs.

The industry faces many challenges – not least the unknowable consequences of Brexit

But there are also opportunities: for example, alternative land uses such as forestry or renewables.

Our team of experts supports the agricultural sector in many ways:

  • Property ownership and leasing – we advise on land acquisitions and disposals, and for landlords and tenants in many different situations
  • Business structures – partnerships, limited companies, sole traders
  • Succession planning – how to hand the farm or business down to the next generation  –  tax and retirement planning, contract farming, and long term care needs
  • Grants and agriculture support schemes
  • Renewables developments and infrastructure schemes – renewables developments and contract variations and interface with utilities, and telecoms and other operators;
  • Regulatory – our experts are familiar with the many rules and pitfalls the sector faces, including health and safety and employment matters,

For more information about what we do, and immediate access to our expert services contact Debbie Dunlop 01465 713118.
