Napthens solicitors has been reappointed as a Legal Panel firm by the NFU, the representative body for the rural sector in England and Wales.

The law firm is one of just two panel firms for the North West, meaning it will continue to work with NFU members across Lancashire and Cumbria, who require legal advice.

The news comes after a six-month review by the organisation of its panel firms, looking at factors including services, fee structures, commitment to NFU members and feedback.

This year is a landmark one for the NFU panel, which was originally established in its current format 10 years ago, with Napthens as one of its founding firms. Napthens will be a panel firm for a further three years.

Andrew Holden, head of the Rural team at Napthens, said: “As one of the original panel firms we are delighted to continue our relationship with the NFU and its members by being reappointed to the Legal Panel.

"Our Farm Future service in particular has been a popular tool for many, offering an innovative way to tackle the practical challenges faced when running a rural business, and planning to hand it over to the next generation.”
