Notable practitioners

"First-class agricultural solicitor" Peter Snodgrass advises rural sector clients on farm partnerships, agricultural tenancy issues, development agreements, and the sale and purchase of rural property. A client says he has a "thorough understanding of the area of agricultural law, but keeps it at the level of common sense so it is easy for us to operate with an informal style."
