New partner set to help expand Trethowans' agricultural and rural property service

Trethowans has strengthened its agricultural and rural property team with the appointment of Grainne Alen-Buckley as a partner.

Grainne, who has nearly 20 years’ experience in the legal industry, will be based in the Salisbury office although her remit will see her working for clients across the entire South, including Winchester and London, where she used to work.

Grainne specialises in country houses ring-fenced within agricultural land and London homes. Her expertise will add to the team, which helps farmers and land owners with a wide range of legal issues.

Marcus Thorpe, partner and head of agriculture and rural property team, said: “We are thrilled to have Grainne on board and know that her areas of expertise will be of real benefit to our growing list of clients. The property issues facing both businesses and individuals are often complex and Grainne has both the knowledge and expertise to guide them through.”

Grainne added: “Trethowans has a fantastic reputation, built through 150 years of providing the best service, so I’m proud to be a part of the team. I’m looking forward to helping existing clients and expanding the reach of this specialist service across the South.”

Trethowans’ agricultural and rural property division is considered among the best in the country according to Chambers UK. The publication lists the very top lawyers in the UK based on feedback and recommendations from clients and peers and Trethowans’ agricultural and rural property team is ranked in the highest possible band.
