Agriculture, Estates & Rural Property
As a former farmer who once looked after 240 acres of Northumberland farmland, it’s safe to say William really knows his stuff when it comes to the countryside. Now an experienced and highly regarded North East lawyer, Will offers the perfect blend of legal expertise and practical know-how.
William regularly advises farming companies, landowners and landed estates on various matters such as buying and selling agricultural land, private client affairs, partnerships, AHA Act tenancies and environmental issues. He is also a member of the Agricultural Law Association, the Country Land and Business Association and the Tenant Farmers Association.
Renowned for his down to earth and pragmatic style, Legal 500 UK have noted that he is ‘very knowledgeable and spends time explaining matters with no legal jargon’.
As you might expect, William is a fan of most countryside pursuits, from walking to golfing. You might also see him on stage, performing, acting and singing as a member of the Hexham Amateur Stage and Operatic Society.
