Rosanne Green, Solicitor at Latimer Hinks, Darlington, has been appointed, by a vote of the members, to the Council of the Agricultural Law Association (ALA).
The ALA was founded in 1975 to provide a forum for professionals serving agriculture lawyers, surveyors, accountants, bankers, farm business consultants and others to support each other in their specialisms.
With a membership of over 1100 most of the leading practitioners in rural affairs in the UK and Europe are involved.
Rosanne specialises in property, specifically agricultural property work, providing advice to farmers on a range of commercial issues including sales and purchases of farms and land, Agricultural Holdings Act tenancies and farm business tenancies, contract farming agreements, deeds of grant and partnership agreements.
Rosanne said: "I am delighted to have been voted onto the Council. I am enormously proud to be a member of the ALA and to be able to contribute to the invaluable work of the organisation which includes, amongst other things, consultation with the Government on proposed agricultural legislative and policy changes. I hope to encourage more professionals in the North East involved in agriculture to join the ALA and reap the benefits of membership.
As a member of both Latimer Hinks Private Client and Commercial Property Teams Rosanne can also advise clients on personal issues such as making wills, preparing trusts, inheritance and capital gains tax planning and other succession planning concerns.
