Farms and Estates

The WBW Farms and Estates team know what it is like to run an owner managed business in the South West, what it is to earn a living from the land, and how hard it can be.

Our Farms and Estates team consists of a dedicated and skilled group of legal practitioners from farming backgrounds, with huge experience, both practical and professional, in farms and other land-based businesses.

Each team advisor will give you clear, effective advice and actions, openly priced and delivered with skill and energy, very much anchored on the “real world”.

We are good at what we do and enjoy the challenges of providing client focussed solutions. As a firm, we have been legal advisors to many farms and estates in the South West for over two hundred years.
