The NFU is pleased to announce Kent-based firm, Warners Solicitors, as the newest appointment to its legal panel following an intensive and robust tender process.
Warners Solicitors will cover the counties of East Sussex and Kent in the South East, bringing the total number of firms on the NFU’s legal panel back to 16.
Announcing the new appointment, NFU Head of Business Services Mike Carr said: “I am delighted to confirm the appointment of Warners Solicitors to the NFU’s legal panel. Their selection was based on their knowledge, expertise and experience in handling agricultural and horticultural matters, along with the location of their offices.”
NFU South East Regional Director William White said: “We welcome the appointment of Warners Solicitors to provide specialist legal advice to our members in East Sussex and Kent. I look forward to establishing a strong relationship with the firm, as well as working with them alongside Thrings Solicitors, the other panel firm in the region to develop this association further.”
He added: “We would also like to thank Knights Solicitors for their support to the NFU and its members in the South East region over the last six years.”
Michael McNally, Partner of Warners Solicitors, said: “Our firm has always had a significant number of clients from the farming industry and we believe that we understand the advice that farmers need. We look forward to working closely with the NFU in providing that advice and support.”
The purpose of the panel is to provide NFU members with local access to expert legal firms providing specialist agricultural and horticultural advice. NFU members continue to save money through the firms offering a discount of 12.5% on their hourly rates, together with fixed fee and other costs packages for various services.
