Julie is well known in agricultural circles for her commercial and practical approach to the legal issues that farmers and land managers have to deal with.
Thanks to her time as chief legal adviser to the National Farmers’ Union, Julie has extensive knowledge of how the Common Agricultural Policy and other EU regimes impact on businesses. She knows her way round the domestic regulations which govern day to day management on farms and estates and is well placed to advise on a range of subjects, including single payments, farm tenancies, contracting agreements, shooting leases and supply contracts. She is a member of the Roythornes Renewables and Charities teams.
When not working directly on client matters, Julie manages our quarterly Agri E-brief, blogs, tweets, writes articles and gives talks on the latest legal developments that impact on farm businesses.
She was awarded the Chairman’s trophy for her performance in the Agricultural Law Association’s fellowship exams in 2012 and is a member of the ALA Council. She is also a proud member of the NFU and the British Association of Shooting and Conservation.
