Agricultural Law is a niche specialism that, as the name implies, focuses on acting on behalf of the agricultural community (including farmers, landowners and rural business) providing a bespoke service covering their legal needs. This encompasses such issues as sales and purchase of farm property, leases and tenancy rights, wealth and tax planning, environmental issues and often renewable energy projects. As you would expect the majority of clients with a specialism in this field are rurally based or situated in towns or smaller cities and the majority (but not all) of the roles we are instructed on reflect this.
Candidates who choose, or sek, to specialise in Agricultral Law tend to find themselves in the privileged position of being in significant demand and consequently if you do not see the role that ideally suits you advertised below please do contact one of our consultants as the majority of agricultural position that re-filled are firms reacting to the availability of talent and creating a bespoke role.
If you enjoy variety then this area of law could be a great option for you. Roles are relatively hard to come by as only specific regional practices handle this type of work. Given the specialist nature of agricultural work, however, there is generally relatively little competition for these types of vacancies when they arise.
