‘You could be speaking to lord Grantham one day, and a tenant farmer ten minutes later. Both are enjoyable to act for, and as challenging,’ Cecil has previously told Spear’s. The sailing and shooting enthusiast specialises in estate, farm and country house purchases and related property matters. He also advises clients on succession and planning issues, from restructuring farm businesses to tax and drawing up wills for extended families; he is particularly well regarded for his conveyancing expertise. He often finds his role to be equally pastoral and legal. ‘It’s about being there and protecting clients,’ he says. ‘Sometimes they almost need you to make the decisions for them.’ ‘A great asset to his firm,’ declares a client. ‘One of the very few lawyers i would turn to, to advise my clients in all matters of private work.’
