Furley Page has appointed one of its most promising recently qualified solicitors to the Commercial Property team to support the expansion in commercial property work and agriculture in particular.
James Fuller, aged 26, was originally selected to join Furley Page’s highly regarded Trainee Solicitor programme in 2015 after achieving a Masters in Commercial Law with Distinction at the University of Bristol and a Postgraduate Diploma in International Legal Practice with Distinction at the University of Law. He qualified in March 2017.
Coming from a Kent farming family, James has a particular interest in rural matters and, as part of Furley Page’s Commercial Property team, he will deal primarily with agricultural work. He is an active member of the Farmers Club and of the British Agricultural History Society. Meanwhile, he is also studying for a Masters in History at the University of Cambridge, where he focuses on the development of property law and the history of landed estates in East Kent.
Managing Partner and Head of Real Estate Jeremy Licence says: “James’s personal and academic interest in issues affecting the farming community means he is particularly well suited to support the expansion of our department. He is an extremely motivated and highly valued member of the team.”
Furley Page has acted for farmers and rural land owners for generations and the agriculture and rural business team is particularly well placed to advise on diversification, planning and land development schemes as well as traditional sale, purchase and letting of farmland.
“I am delighted to join the Commercial Property team at Furley Page, particularly at a time when the work we do to support agricultural and rural businesses is growing,” said James. “I look forward to advising a diverse range of clients on all aspects of commercial property and agricultural property.”
James is a member of the Agricultural Law Association as well as Kent Law Society. He is also a keen runner and enjoys country pursuits.
