Lichfield legal firm celebrates £7million of agricultural deals

The first half of 2011 has seen a Lichfield legal firm complete a hat-trick of agricultural-based deals worth more than £7million.

The deals by Ansons Solicitors were all based in Staffordshire and included the sale of a working farm, the purchase of a 200 acre block of land and the sale and purchase of various other agricultural properties.

Senior partner Simon James said:

“The first half of the year has seen a notable increase in agricultural related legal work.  There is also a notable trend with many farmers and landowners seeking advice on diversification schemes including woodland acquisitions, the conversion of agricultural buildings for office and light industrial purposes, and option agreements for development projects.

“The latter is a clear demonstration of how farmers and landowners have had to adapt to a changing market.  It also pays tribute to their flexibility, resourcefulness and entrepreneurial sprit.”

Mr James also commented that enquiries were being received due to the HS2 proposals and that he anticipated those proposals will generate a significant increase in work.
