Focus on our private property and agriculture team at Clarke Willmott

Clarke Willmott’s team of private property and agricultural specialists possess extensive and well-rounded experience which enables them to provide informed legal advice on every aspect of rural and urban property transactions.

In this series, we’re showcasing the individuals who make up our talented team. We spoke to Taunton-based partner Mark Buckerfield and partner Samantha Grimwood, from our Bristol office, to find out more about the work they do, their relationship with clients and how you can get in touch about working with the team.

Can you provide a brief overview of private property and agriculture at Clarke Willmott?

The private property and agriculture team is led by partners Mark Buckerfield and Rod Lloyd-Jones, in Taunton, and Samantha Grimwood in either Taunton or Bristol, but serving clients across England and Wales. Other team members include Helen Lock, Kerry Eiserbeck, Grace Phillips, Rebecca Browne and James Knott.

Our team boasts vast experience, with most of our lawyers having accumulated over 10 years of practice since their qualification and some over 20.

Mark joined the firm in 2001. When asked about his perception of the team, he had this to say:

We are an established team of private client lawyers who deal with the buying and selling of residential and agricultural property. Our private property and agriculture team are fortunate to be able to work in a beautiful part of the world and are able to carry out interesting and high-quality work”.

What service can clients expect to receive when working with Clarke Willmott?

While the team is predominantly based in the Taunton and Bristol offices, it extends its private property and agricultural support services to clients nationwide. Clarke Willmott maintains a network of offices across the country, which also includes Birmingham, Cardiff, London, Manchester, and Southampton.

Clients can expect to receive a bespoke and tailored service which is focused on providing 1-1 client support.

How would you describe the relationship you have with your clients?
