Catch up on recordings of Rural Hub webinars


Recorded on Thursday 9 July 2020

45 minutes in duration

Organised with our business supporter, Lodders solicitors 

The most common model for a farming business is a partnership.  However, as most farming businesses are family enterprises the need for a formal partnership document is often overlooked.  In this webinar, chaired by Henry Lucas of the Rural Hub:

John Rouse, Partner and estate planning specialist at Lodders discusses the importance of considering the futures prospects of your farming business and how the next generation is going to form part of that plan;

James Spreckley, head of their Agricultural Law team, discusses the benefits of a properly drawn up partnership agreement and why they should not be overlooked in modern day agriculture.

Following their presentations John and James answer a range of questions.  Thanks go to Lodders for organising and recording the webinar.
