The Helping it Happen Awards 2021: Shepherd and Wedderburn's Hamish Lean on the Rural Business Award
In this blog, Hamish Lean covers how Shepherd and Wedderburn represents the needs of its clients throughout the rural sector, and how this knowledge of the diverse kinds of businesses all over rural Scotland led to them being eager to sponsor the Rural Business Award at this years' Helping it Happen Awards.
The rural business team at Shepherd and Wedderburn offers legal advice across all farming and land management issues, sharing our clients’ passion for rural business development and land and countryside management.
We understand where rural land use and business intertwine and we enjoy supporting our innovative and business-minded clients, forming strong relationships and working in partnership with them to resolve the challenges they face now, and anticipate the challenges that may arise further down the line.
We make it our business to fully understand our clients’ needs, providing high quality advice to consistently deliver successful outcomes, and we are recognised as market leaders for the diversity of our expertise. Our team specialises in rural matters and we maintain technical prowess across a wide range of legal issues, taking pride in the breadth of our key strengths. Additionally, the rural team works closely with colleagues across the firm, allowing clients access to tailored support from our tax, planning, health and safety, construction, corporate, litigation, immigration and employment specialists.
These are extremely challenging times for rural Scotland on a number of fronts. However, our rural business clients are a diverse and entrepreneurial bunch. They excel in identifying and pursuing opportunities wherever they might arise. That is why we are both excited and proud to sponsor the Rural Business Award, which recognises and lauds the very qualities that we see exhibited by our entrepreneurial clients.
