Agricultural Disputes

The nature of our location and client base means that we have extensive experience in disputes concerning farming, agriculture, and food processing. There are many different types of dispute and different ways to resolve them. Generally, the sooner you start to look for a solution, the more quickly a matter is likely to be resolved and the more straightforward it will be. Our dispute resolution lawyers work in close conjunction with all practice areas and have an in-depth understanding of the commercial drivers of clients who run businesses in the ‘field to fork’ sector.   

Our expertise includes, but is not limited to:

  • Disputes concerning land and boundaries.
  • Disputes concerning renewables. 
  • Nuisance issues, including pollution, noise, and anti-social behaviour.
  • Contamination disputes. 
  • Insurance coverage disputes. 
  • Contractual disputes, including those concerning machinery and hire-purchase agreements. 
  • Agricultural tenancy issues. 
  • Professional Negligence Claims – to include those against solicitors and accountants. 
  • Injunctions – to include those concerning rights of way and interference with property rights.
  • Debt claims.
