Andrew Linehan has many years of extensive experience in the Rural sector, including advising a wide range of farms and estates on property matters, both at transactional and strategic levels. 

Liaising closely with our Private Client Partners, Andrew recognises the importance of understanding both ‘upstream’ and ‘downstream’ consequences of any instruction before instructions are put into action.  Given ever rising asset values and tax complexities, getting the tax planning and succession aspects of any instruction right adds real value for clients. 

Andrew also brings a particular interest in ensuring that the structural aspects of both transactions and the operational and trading side of clients’ affairs are optimised. 

Andrew works with a range of other advisers including land agents, accountants and bankers across Scotland to deliver the best outcomes possible for clients.  Andrew is always keen to meet clients on their property to better understand their affairs.

As one of a small number of lawyers in this Sector who are Accredited as specialists in Agricultural Law by the Law Society of Scotland, Andrew has significant experience in agricultural tenancies – acting for both landlords and tenants – and has advised extensively in this practice area.
