Know where you stand

Retirement, death and succession can pose difficult questions if you fail to tie down the right structure for the ownership of your farm or estate business. And while partnerships once dealt solely with the farming business, they now commonly extend to holding land and entitlements too.

Stay one step ahead

Structuring a partnership agreement appropriately is particularly important if you’ve specific tax planning requirements in mind. So we always work closely with your accountant and other advisers to make sure arrangements take your circumstances fully into account.

We’re also able to advise on partnership dissolutions, joint venture and share farming agreements, tenancy agreements and ongoing occupation schemes.

We know that partners do fall out.  Sometimes the problem can be resolved but other times it is clear that the partnership cannot continue. Our team has all the specialist knowledge required to help you in such circumstances.
