Stronachs Logo

Stronachs property, private client and corporate teams work closely with farm owners and traditional agricultural producers nationwide, supporting Scotland’s strong rural economy.

Our clients range from small-scale single farm owners to major agricultural businesses with interests in the full range of produce, including fruit and vegetable growers, machinery manufacturers, livestock breeders and meat product producers, as well as food ingredients and manufacturers.

The sector continues to evolve and ongoing legislative change brings new challenges for agricultural businesses every year.  Stronachs’ rural team provides support to help clients meet changes in law and requirements of various regulatory bodies including Food Standard Agency, SEPA and local authority environmental health teams.

Our team has significant experience advising on a wide range of property transactions including sales/purchases, wayleaves, servitudes and rights of way, sales of land for development, options, commercial leases and Renewable Energy projects.   Working closely with our private client team, we assist with asset transfers and succession planning for all manner of agricultural and rural clients including trusts and estates.
