Alex Butler-Zagni, based at the firm’s Sudbury office, is celebrating having successfully completed the Agricultural Law Association’s advanced educational programme. Alex is one of fifteen professionals across the country this year to have been awarded a Fellowship of the Agricultural Law Association.
The ALA is ‘the UK’s largest inter-professional organisations devoted to the law and business of the countryside’. For over 40 years, the ALA has been a forum for professionals serving agriculture, such as solicitors, surveyors, accountants, and others.
Alex specialises in rural property transactions and leads on all agricultural and farming matters at Steed & Steed LLP. We can help you with all legal aspects of land ownership, including farm and land sales and purchases, farm tenancies, diversification, commercial tenancies, financial arrangements, development land, options, and financial arrangements.
Alex says, “I am delighted to have completed all stages of the ALA’s education programme, leading ultimately to Fellowship. The Association promotes the understanding and development of the law and practice in agriculture, environment, food and related issues. It brings together those serious about practising in those areas of law relevant to rural practice, from taxation to trusts and farming business structures, as well as property” It means that we can provide the comprehensive service across all of these areas that farming families require from their solicitor”.
Commenting on Alex’s achievement, Karen Goulding, partner, said “We congratulate Alex on the success that he has achieved through his dedication and passion for the industry. Agriculture and rural business has always been at the heart of the firm. For many of our farming clients we have acted for their family over several generations going back over 100 years.
