LAS - NFU Legal Assistance Scheme
The Legal Assistance Scheme (LAS) is a benefit for farmer and grower members, costing just £35 + VAT per year.
The scheme offers financial support of up to £6,000 towards fees incurred fighting disputes, relating to your farming and growing business.
We also offer advice and assistance via CallFirst on 0370 845 8458 - if the initial advice doesn’t resolve your issue you can be referred to one of our legal panel firm partners in your area for more in-depth legal advice.
The NFU Legal Panel Service is made up of 16 firms of solicitors carefully selected for their proven track record of excellence, reputation and experience in agricultural and horticultural matters. Their expertise, coupled with their understanding of the needs and businesses of farmers and growers gives our members peace of mind.
The firms offer savings to our farmer and grower members of up to 12.5% on their hourly rates as well as fixed fees on specific matters.
You can also benefit from a free initial phone discussion with a panel firm solicitor before formal instructions are given. For more information visit nfuonline.com/LAS
