Agriculture and Rural Business

Agriculture and Rural Business

Peter Smith, Partner | Burness Paull

Scotland’s rural economy is changing fast. The rewards for embracing change are fresh perspectives, innovative ideas and new opportunities. We are proud to partner with the change embracers, who range from some of Scotland’s most historic family estates to new business ventures but they all have a common drive to succeed in Scotland’s rural economy.

Our approach is different. As the leading advisers to Corporate Scotland, our clients expect legal services to be delivered by experts, on time and with the minimum of fuss. We deliver the same high quality service to all our clients in all sectors.  

The strength and depth of the firm means we can advise on the issues which matter to the owners and operators of rural businesses in Scotland, including agricultural law, fishing, forestry, crofting, compulsory purchase, planning and the environment, development and renewables. We take care of not only our clients’ business needs but also their personal needs and advise on wills, trusts and succession planning.

We have market leading teams across all divisions and our people care about our clients and their businesses.
