We work with a large number of farmers, landowners and estate managers across Devon and Cornwall. All of them recognise that as a truly local law firm, we understand the area and the commercial potential of its rural zones far better than any larger city firms.
As you’ll know, these are challenging times for landowners, with unprecedented economic pressures forcing many to restructure their operations. At the same time, possibilities for diversifying are plentiful, but fraught with complexity: new technologies, new environmental and renewable energy opportunities, new forms of taxation.
Having legal advice from a partner who really understands the rural sector and the region, and who will pro-actively indicate new commercial opportunities for you, has never been more important.
At Stephens Scown, our specialist rural services team is on-hand across the region to help you get your new projects off the ground while protecting your assets, always in a manner which The Legal 500 legal directory calls ‘personable, approachable and helpful.’
The management of land is undergoing a slow but steady revolution. We’ll help you stay at the cutting edge of this revolution and steer you through the sometimes complex bureaucracy.
Stephens Scown has been Cornish Mutual's company solicitors for a number of years and we are very happy with the professional service they provide. As a rural insurer we require a range of expertise and therefore work with a variety of partners, their accessibility and effort to establish effective relationships with us is very refreshing. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to our Members.
