Rural services

There has never been a more important time for landowners and farmers to receive premier specialist advice.

That advice is most effective when it comes from those with expert knowledge of the law, combined with a genuine understanding of the lives of the people it will affect.

With this in mind, Moore Blatch has built a specialist team of leading lawyers deliberately selected for their knowledge of the countryside to provide you with clear, practical and commercial advice on matters affecting landowners, farmers and others with interest in land and the countryside.

As one of the leading specialist legal rural services teams in the South we will deliver the quality of service and expertise you would expect from a top London practice but at a rate of a quality regional firm. Our lawyers are accessible and approachable explaining legal matters in plain, easy to understand language. We are happy to hold meetings at your home or place of business wherever you are located.

Our long-standing clients include owners of landed estates, farms, large country homes, polo and racing businesses, stud farms and veterinary practices situated throughout England and Wales. The breadth of our client base has enabled the team to develop substantial and quality experience which will be of benefit to you when seeking specialist legal advice. 

A number of the team are ranked in Chambers (the independent legal directory) as leaders in their respective fields and many in the team are members of the Agricultural Law Association, the Country Land and Business Association and the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners. We were also instrumental in setting up the Agricultural Law Association south central regional group.

The spectrum of advice we can offer you ranges from selling or purchasing a farm, country house or landed estate to sophisticated capital tax and succession planning and from farming partnerships to quotas and subsidies, employment issues, property litigation, heritage law, manorial law, regulatory issues, family law, probate, trust advice and issues relating to rights of way.

You will receive insights and advice which you simply cannot get from other law firms. If you would like to find out more, please contact our head of rural services Ed Whittington.
