Agriculture & Rural Affairs

We’ve been providing legal advice to landowners, farmers and tenants in Suffolk and the surrounding counties since 1840. Therefore, as you can imagine, we have a wealth of knowledge and experience relating to agriculture and rural law including:

Land and property
Environment, farming, food & drink

Divorce, Separation & Mediation

There are many things to think about when ending your marriage, be that through a separation agreement or through a divorce. It’s likely to mean changes to who you live with, maybe where you live, as well as changes to your finances. This can be further complicated where children are involved to care for and support. It’s a huge change in your life and can be a very difficult and emotional time.

Our matrimonial team can explain the options open to you and guide you through the process so that you feel supported and confident throughout this most difficult time.

Estate Planning & Probate

Estate planning isn’t just about what happens after your death, it’s also about how you live and who will look after your affairs for you in the event that you can’t do it for yourself.

Powers of attorney and what they can and can’t manage on your behalf are complex agreements that have a significant impact of how you live your life. Our team of experienced solicitors can guide you through this process so that you are comfortable with the decisions you make and the attorneys you appoint.

Our wills team can guide you through the complexity of making the right type of will and / or trusts for your family and ‘good causes’, ensuring that they have one less thing to worry about at an incredibly stressful time. They can also help you to review your financial affairs and take steps to reduce the impact of inheritance tax on your estate.

Family Law

Our team of Family Law solicitors represent clients in all types of family matters including divorce, co-habitee disputes, residence and contact, child care, financial matters and ownership of property, ancillary relief, non-molestation orders and occupation orders.

Disputes and litigation

Our team regularly handle a variety of disputes – large and small. They can provide specialist advice on how to resolve your issue quickly and cost-effectively.

Examples of litigation matters include:

Issues between you and your landlord
Boundary and property disagreements
Conflicts with retailers, suppliers or service providers
Problems with contracts (employment and consumers)
Where you are having problems regarding debts repaid

Personal Injury Law

Having an accident or experiencing trauma of any kind is bad enough, especially when the road to recovery can be a long and painful process. But when it’s through no fault of your own it can leave you feeling angry, confused or even desolated. Not knowing where to start in order to regain some control over your life can compound matters and make you feel very vulnerable indeed.

We can help find a way to make life a little easier for you so that you regain control and can live life to the full.

Our specialist personal injury lawyers can take a look at your case and determine if you are entitled to compensation to help you get back on your feet.
