Agricultural and Farming Solicitors

East Anglia has some of the most modern, dynamic and forward thinking farming businesses in the Country.  Our clients are frequently recognised as the winners of national and regional awards for their farming diversification and land management. 

At Steed & Steed LLP, you will find lawyers who know the industry inside out.   We have the expertise to offer a comprehensive range of legal services to farmers, landowners and those operating within the food chain. For many of our farming clients we have acted for their family over several generations going back over 100 years.  

We offer a professional, reliable and approachable service to all our clients.  We are frequently complimented on the speed of our response, particularly in the area of land transactions and on how accessible we are to our clients.   We are also noted for the way that we work closely with surveyors, accountants and other advisers to make sure that our clients get the best result.

At Steed & Steed LLP, we continue to be fully committed to the interests of the industry. We are keen advocates, supporting British farming and the region’s farming infrastructure. Our advisers follow the food and farming consultations that impact on our farming and landowning clients.  

We assist clients across Suffolk and North Essex but geography is no issue. If you farm in East Anglia or even slightly further afield, we would be pleased to hear from you.

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, entitlements, agri-environmental schemes, development land and options, and renewable energy arrangements. We have extensive experience in this sector of:

  • Agricultural and Commercial Tenancies;
  • Pillar 1 and Pillar 2 Common Agricultural Policy payments;
  • Succession planning, wills and probate;
  • Prosecutions by the Health and Safety Executive, Trading Standards and Environment Agency;
  • Development land and options;
  • Renewable energy projects; and
  • Collaboration Agreements.
