All matters including the sale and purchase of farms, their structuring, finance, subdivision, use and development, tax issues and all other legal problems and issues that affect farmers can be dealt with promptly and at reasonable cost. We have experience in sharemilking and other farming disputes and their resolution if necessary by conducting arbitration and court hearings.
Our rural clients know there is much more to farming, horticulture and forestry than working on the land. They are managing valuable businesses, and are exposed to unique risks. They come to us looking for practical legal advice they can rely on. We help farmers with all of the legal issues they face, from buying and selling farms through to financing, employment issues, sharemilking and grazing agreements, and environmental issues. We also help farming families to work out how best to protect their assets, and put together succession plans.
The company offers a wide range of legal services, with a wealth of knowledge in key areas including property and employment law, wills, trusts and estates, powers of attorney, Maori land, business and family law and civil litigation.
