Robert Swift


Farm & Estates Sales and Purchases Principal Contact

“"He is extremely well versed in the disposal of large agricultural and farm assets, and works to tight timescales."”

Chambers 2019

Robert Swift is a consultant in our Farms & Estates team, and for twenty five years has specialised in helping clients to buy and sell farms and estates throughout the South of England. Robert is a graduate of Bristol University. He became a partner at Wilsons in 1994.

Robert acts for many buyers purchasing "off market" and city institutions, trust companies, charities, farmers and new entrants to farm and estate ownership are amongst his clients. He acts frequently for first time farm or estate buyers, some from overseas as well as for entrepreneurs seeking to acquire a piece of England to enjoy as a home, or to diversify their investment portfolio.

Past editions of Chambers describe him as "superb in complex property matters" and commend his "hands on" approach. He is a great believer in personal recommendation as a source of finding professionals and is more than happy to give a number of referees who will comment on how he and the members of his team handled their sale or purchase.

His memberships include the Farmers Club and the Agricultural Law Association. He writes for Farmers Weekly and other journals on rural property matters. He has a specific interest in Nova Scotia.
