Legal Practice Services

Patrick Sutton has extensive experience in rural conveyancing transactions and takes an active interest in the unique issues confronting primary producers, particularly graziers and sugar cane farmers. Our rural law team listens to clients and understands your family businesses.

We not only assist with the purchase and sale of rural land, but also leasing, agistment and governmental requirements such as brands, tags and water licensing and allocation issues. We also offer business restructuring and succession planning advice to rural clients.

Whilst Legalsense NQ is based in Townsville, Patrick and the team regularly visit rural clients closer to their home and actively support rural events in order to develop strong, personal relationships with our clients.

For more information on our rural services, please contact us. We always monitor our messages closely and will get back to you shortly.
