As a diverse way of life, and involving the interrelationship of people with often conflicting interests, farming disputes almost inevitably arise in one form or another. This can particularly be the case where there is a landlord – tenant relationship.

Where a dispute arises, the key to successful resolution is to recognise that, although the necessary procedures are not hostile, they still have to be acted upon. By facing up to the issue head on, a resolution to the satisfaction of all parties can often be achieved amicably and efficiently. Through the litigation department, the firm has considerable experience handling agricultural disputes, including:
• Boundaries
• Rights of way
• Water supplies and drainage
• Compliance with statutory provisions for both landlords and tenants
• Matters arising on the creation, dissolution or general practice of a farming partnership
• Matters that require arbitration

Here at Oglethorpe Sturton And Gillibrand we now have Murray Wilson who has joined us on our litigation team. Murray has an extensive knowledge of the court process having represented claimants and defendants from relatively smalls claims in the county courts through to high value, complex, commercial disputes before the chancery and commercial courts. Murray also has some criminal work experience advising and representing clients at police stations and magistrates courts.
