  • Our team


An exemplary team with unrivalled regional knowledge, Rollits provides expertise in every aspect of agricultural law. Combining legal expertise, shrewd negotiation skills and considered planning advice, we offer a depth and scope of services that is truly unique.

Drawing on our vast experience, our specialist agricultural law team can offer comprehensive help and advice on a huge range of challenges faced by the farming community today.

Experience and expertise

We work with farmers and landowners across Yorkshire, Cumbria, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and beyond, and are recognised by both Chambers and the Legal 500 as one of Yorkshire's biggest and best agricultural firms. 

Our team helps a wide range of clients to achieve their goals, ranging from tenant farmers to large corporate freeholders, and encompassing livestock, arable and horticultural businesses. We also act on behalf of banks in many agricultural matters.

We help farmers face challenges and opportunities head on and have assisted many with their plans for diversification - in renewables projects for example - where we can offer planning advice, negotiation options and lease agreements.
