Gloucestershire Echo - - ARMISTICEDAY 100 YEARS ON -

» WILLANS’ agri­cul­ture and es­tates team wel­comed se­nior as­so­ciate Adam Hale to help meet the de­mands of its ex­pand­ing ru­ral client base.

Adam, a spe­cial­ist in agri­cul­tural law, es­tate plan­ning and es­tate ad­min­is­tra­tion, joins the firm from the Chel­tenham of­fice of Knights plc.

He is ex­pe­ri­enced in ad­vis­ing ru­ral busi­nesses, farm­ers and pri­vate landown­ers on a wide range of ru­ral land man­age­ment is­sues, rang­ing from ac­qui­si­tions and dis­pos­als through to agri­cul­tural ten­an­cies, re­new­able en­ergy and di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion schemes.

A full mem­ber of the So­ci­ety of Trust & Es­tate Prac­ti­tion­ers, Adam is also ex­pe­ri­enced in es­tate ad­min­is­tra­tion, with a par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est in suc­ces­sion plan­ning for farm­ing fam­i­lies.

The firm’s agri­cul­ture & es­tates de­part­ment is led by highly-re­garded ex­pert in the field, Robin Beck­ley, who is praised by in­de­pen­dent guide Cham­bers and Part­ners for his “de­tailed knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence”.

Robin said: “As one of the key re­gional play­ers in agri­cul­tural law, we have seen an in­crease in de­mand for our ser­vices and Adam’s ap­point­ment will en­able us to go from strength to strength.

“I am con­fi­dent that our clients will ben­e­fit from the wealth of knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence he has to of­fer, and his thor­ough un­der­stand­ing of the in­ner work­ings of this unique sec­tor”.

Willans, which cel­e­brated its 70th an­niver­sary last year, is praised in the lat­est edi­tion of na­tional in­de­pen­dent guide The Le­gal 500 for its “highly pro­fes­sional” and “well-struc­tured” agri­cul­ture & es­tates team.
