Emily Pumfrey becomes a Fellow of the ALA

We are delighted to announce that Emily Pumfrey has been admitted as a Fellow to the Agricultural Law Association. 

The ALA was founded in 1975 for top professionals serving rural businesses including lawyers, surveyors, accountants, bankers and farm business consultants. It is now the UK’s premier independent cross-disciplinary organisation with members including some of the leading practitioners in rural affairs in the UK and Europe.

Emily Pumfrey heads up our Agriculture and Rural Business team at Greenwoods GRM. She specialises in farm acquisitions and disposals, agricultural tenancies, and commercial investment matters within the agriculture sector.  Emily’s farming background enables her to deal with such issues in the sector in a practical and informative manner.

The Fellowship of the ALA awards professionals who attend the advanced training course and pass a written examination – a badge of excellence as a way of distinguishing themselves as Fellows of the ALA.

Emily commented, “I am delighted to have become a Fellow of the ALA. The Association promotes the understanding and development of the law and practice in agriculture. It brings together those serious about practising in those areas of law relevant to rural practice, from taxation to trusts and farming business structures, as well as property, succession planning and environmental matters. Our team’s involvement with the ALA means that we can provide the comprehensive service across all of these areas that farming families and agribusinesses have come to expect from their solicitor.”
