Farming Law

Farming Law

Farming is one of the most important sectors in the Irish economy. It is an industry which has survived generations and the most difficult of circumstances over the last number of years.

This area of law requires specific expertise in advising our clients on the various issues which arise, in particular regarding the family farm.

We have expertise in advising farmers regarding the transfer of sites to their children. We will ensure land removed from the farm is transferred in a manner which is both tax compliant and tax efficient. We will ensure that independent legal advice is given when required to ensure that no conflict of interest will arise.
