Clarke Jeffers have been advising the agricultural community for over 75 years.
In that time we have come to understand that farming is, amongst other attributes, a business. As with all businesses the key to successful farming is a culmination of knowledge, hard work and successful adaption to the many changes and regulations imposed on the agricultural sector.
Many of these changes include strict regulations which impact on the development of the farm as a business and indeed the passing of the farm from one generation to the next. Clarke Jeffers provide specialist advice which involves business law and private law.
When making any commercial decisions with your farm it is important to consider the implications these may have on your business as a whole to include tax implications, compliance with EU Schemes and Regulations and the Department of Agriculture.
Clarke Jeffers represent a wide variety of agricultural businesses from small farming enterprises to large horticultural concerns and buying groups. We provide advice and specialist knowledge which ensure our clients can focus on their business while being assured that all of their legal issues are covered.
Further, we are committed to ongoing training to ensure that our solicitors are fully up to date on all aspects of agricultural law. This commitment ensures that we can provide an advantage to our clients when called upon to do so.

- Farm transfers and succession planning
