Legal Panel


The NFU has reappointed Thrings to its legal panel for seven counties in south-east England.

The law firm will continue to offer specialist legal advice to NFU members in Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Surrey, West Sussex, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire for a further three years.

The panel provides NFU members with direct and discounted access to legal firms specifically selected for their reputation and expertise in agricultural and horticultural matters, including property issues, tenancies, disputes, rural planning and regulatory matters, as well as non-farming areas such as diversification, tax planning, probate, family and conveyancing.

Thrings – which has the largest specialist agricultural team of any law firm in the UK – has been a member of the panel since it was established in its current format by the NFU in 2008. The firm provides specialist legal advice to farmers, landowners and those involved in the business of agriculture from its new offices in Romsey, as well as London, Bath, Bristol, Swindon and Frome Livestock Market.

NFU South East regional director William White said: “We are delighted that Thrings has been re-appointed and will remain on the NFU legal panel for the south-east for the next three years. Our farmer and grower members will be able to call on the firm’s outstanding expertise in agricultural law and its excellent value provided from the 12.5% discount which is exclusive to NFU members.”
