Henry Cecil, who specialises in estate, farm and country house purchases, plus succession and planning issues, says: ‘With landed estates, above any other type of client, having such diverse and varied interests you end up providing them with legal advice across the whole legal spectrum so they make very interesting clients.’ This year, he adds, has ‘seen more activity from foreign buyers of rural property looking to take advantage of the better exchange rates’. On the advisory side, Cecil’s clients have been looking to ‘establish the applicability of business property relief to their estates’. One client says he is ‘one of the very few lawyers who I would turn to to advise my clients in all matters of private work’.
