AVELINA WRIGHT

Avelina is a specialist in agricultural and rural property matters, acting for land owners, tenants, landed estates and charities. She enjoys tackling each of the often unique challenges that her clients face, many of which require bespoke solutions. Through her approachability and clear desire to do her best for her clients, she has built up many long-lasting relationships.

As a co-founder of the Agricultural Law Association’s regional North West group, Avelina remains a coordinator of the same. She took her Agricultural Law Association’s Fellowship exams in 2016 and subsequently became one of the first Fellows in the North West.

Having enjoyed a childhood in her family-owned woodlands in Germany, as well as roaming her neighbours’ hop fields and using their tractors as climbing frames, it was inevitable that Avelina would feel at home acting on behalf of farmers and landowners. She now uses slightly larger climbing frames and is a lover of the great outdoors.
