She specialises in all aspects of agricultural and rural property matters including; agricultural tenancies, sales and purchases of agricultural property, residential and commercial leases and the first registration of unregistered titles.

“I am delighted to have joined the Rural Law Practice. It is great to be working with such an experienced team dedicated to all matters relating to rural law. I have always focused on Agricultural and Rural Property law, especially first registration of unregistered titles, and being married to a farmer, I understand the complexities of the industry from both a personal and legal point of view.”

“The increasing demand we have from our agricultural clients has meant that we have expanded The Rural Law Practice. It’s fantastic to welcome someone with Verity’s skills and experience to the company.
