Birketts expands agricultural team
East of England law firm Birketts has responded to growing demand for legal services within the agribusiness sector with expansion of its specialist agricultural team.
Six new lawyers have joined the team and will be based across Birketts’ offices in Chelmsford, Norwich, Ipswich and Cambridge, providing one of the largest dedicated agribusiness teams in the UK.
Head of the agricultural team at Birketts, Jack Royall, said: “With farmers and land managers dealing with ever bigger and more diverse businesses, what has remained constant is the value of specialist legal support, available when they need it. Very few decisions made in the sector are short term and our clients therefore appreciate the value in getting specialist advice which they can rely on.”
The Birketts agribusiness team was recently praised in the Legal 500 listing as being ‘excellent in terms of accessibility, conciseness and depth of knowledge’ and delivering solution-orientated advice.
