“A very persuasive advocate, and is particularly strong on the more esoteric legal points of a case.”

Chambers UK,  2022
Chancery, PROBATE AND TAX

Adam is a well respected chancery barrister who has significant experience of farming matters. Most notably he recently appeared in a week-long trial which concerned a hotly contested Farm Business Tenancy (under the Agricultural Tenancies Act 1995) and involved other complicated matters such as lease/licence distinction arguments, issues relating to the nature of a “grass keep” agreement and what constitutes implied surrender (in an agricultural context). You can read more about this case here.

Adam has a thriving property law practice so his agricultural work often has a property law flavour (including trespass/boundary issues; estoppel claims; land purchase issues and landlord/tenant disputes). However he also has substantial experience of farm partnership cases and related commercial issues, and notable experience of wills, trusts and probate matters, such that he can generally turn his hand to any issues which may arise in the farming context.
