Law firm Vincents Solicitors is offering a range of new legal services following the appointment of agricultural law and property specialist Mike Kirkham.

Farmers, agricultural tenants, leaseholders and freeholders are all being invited to meet Mike over the coming weeks to find out more about his specialist expertise in arranging leases and resolving disputes. Solicitor Mike has more than 25 years’ commercial property experience under his belt, acting for landowners, housebuilders and landlords requiring support for acquisitions, disposals, leases and disputes.

He also has significant experience in acting for freeholders, management companies and leaseholders, dealing with service charge disputes, collective freehold acquisition, ‘right to manage’ cases and lease extensions.

As a member of the Agricultural Law Association, Mike also has worked with numerous farmers and landowners, dealing with the sale, purchase and leasing of all forms of agricultural land together with managing tenancy succession and leasehold disputes for a number of years.

In order to bring these new services directly to agricultural clients, Mike will be based primarily in the firm’s rural branches in Longridge and Garstang, and handle property work from Preston and Blackpool.

He said: “I am pleased to be joining a well-established and successful commercial team.”
