Rural Law

A proud history in the farming community

Over the years we’ve formed strong ties with Canterbury’s rural communities, providing efficient, effective services that allow our clients to concentrate on what really matters – running their businesses. 

Our knowledge of the agriculture sector is a practical, hands-on one, with several of our firm’s Partners having their own farming interests, and with our entire team of Rural Law specialists going to great lengths to develop an appreciation for the needs of both large-scale farming operations and smaller land holdings.

As the only legal firm supplying services to CRT, members can use their CRT cards to pay for our broad array of services, which include:

  • Buying, selling and financing rural land, machinery and livestock
  • Advice on the most appropriate structures for the ownership of assets, operation of businesses and strategies for succession planning

  • Relationship property issues
