Commercial Property – Landed Estates and Agriculture

Moore Barlow’s Rural Services team is the largest dedicated Agriculture and Estates legal team in London and the South. Many of our team have decades of experience, and many come from farming and equestrian family backgrounds and are passionate about the sector they work for. We are well-known in the industry for ‘walking the land’ with our clients and their professional advisers rather than talking over the phone, a service not many of our competitors replicate.

Contentious Trusts and Estates

The contentious trusts team has a strong reputation as a go-to firm for high-net-worth individuals. The depth of knowledge and skill that the Moore Barlow team has make it a real alternative to London firms, offering the same or higher levels of expertise and competitive rates. While we act for domestic clients, we also have an international client base, acting for clients in Singapore, Canada, Switzerland, Australia, Spain and the USA.


Moore Barlow’s family services encompass all aspects of family law, from pre-nuptial agreements to securing a financial settlement and arrangements for children (including international abduction cases). We’re empathetic, discreet and always supportive. We have a well-earned reputation as powerful advocates who recommend sensible, non-confrontational courses. Our lawyers are members of Resolution and trained mediators and have helped many clients avoid litigation altogether.

Our Private Wealth team is one of the largest specialist teams in Southern England with a strong reputation for tax efficient succession and for all aspects of trust advice including establishment, administration, winding up of trusts and the taxation consequences supported by both specialised lawyers and a chartered tax advisory team. The team are heavily involved with the Society of Trust Practitioners, the Private Client Sector of the Law Society and Solicitors for the Elderly.

Moore Barlow’s team have a strong reputation for securing prestigious property for their clients. Our team are well connected in the property sector and have strong links with other professionals such as surveyors and accountants and have good relationships with local agents. Whether a dream home or an investment property, our team utilise their networks effectively to ensure a smooth and timely purchase.
