The National Farmers Union (NFU) has confirmed that Lincolnshire law firm, Wilkin Chapman Solicitors, has been reappointed to its legal panel.

The NFU’s legal panel membership is reviewed every three years, and firms which apply for membership undergo a rigorous review process. Wilkin Chapman Solicitors have been a NFU panel member for 7 years, providing legal advice and support to NFU members in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire. This latest reappointment means the firm will continue to provide legal advice until 2018, when the panel will undergo another review.

Catherine Harris, partner and head of Wilkin Chapman’s agricultural department, said: “We are delighted to be reconfirmed as a legal panel member for NFU members in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire. Only a small number of law firms in the UK make it onto the panel, and our reappointment confirms our long history and depth of experience in dealing with rural and agricultural legal matters – both for agricultural businesses and individuals within the rural communities we serve.”

Commenting on the law firm’s reappointment, Richard Hezlet, NFU regional director, said: “I was so pleased to hear that Wilkin Chapman had been re-appointed as our panel solicitors for Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire as they not only provide excellent value – and especially so with the 12.5% discount exclusive to NFU members – but they also provide a thumping good service. We look forward to continuing to work closely with them in the future.”

Their expert solicitors can provide a wide range of legal advice including wills, estate and inheritance tax planning, succession planning, family and divorce, as well as commercial property, business law, disputes and regulatory issues.
