Succession planning for rural businesses

Succession planning for rural businesses

We have recorded a series of six podcasts where we explore common issues encountered by rural businesses and estates. These podcasts aim to share our knowledge and experience in order to provide thought provoking and informative discussions.

Throughout the series, Adam Corbin is joined by lawyers from across Michelmores who work collaboratively on transactions and disputes concerning these issues for our clients. The core themes we will be covering are: modern challenges in rural estate management, environmental opportunities, and future food production challenges and opportunities.

In this episode we will be considering why succession of rural businesses remains a thorny problem, despite the high profile disputes we have seen over the past 20-30 years, and considerable development of the law in this area. Adam Corbin is joined by lawyers with contentious and non-contentious practices, who each give their own perspective, as we explore the subject through discussion on estoppel claims, family constitutions, tax planning, and tenancies.
