Cooper Rapley has been serving the Manawatu community for over 100 years, and have a close and proud association with the rural sector. Many of our clients are primary producers ranging from hill country farming to forestry and intensive horticulture. We have built up a
specialist practise under the leadership of Richard Howie, who is based at our Feilding branch.
Our rural law practitioners can advise you in all aspects of sale and purchase agreements, financing, asset protection, succession planning and trusts, restructuring for limiting liability and maximising income, leasing and joint ventures. We understand that ecological issues, new technologies and proliferating legislation are some of the many factors that need to be addressed whilst engaging in Rural and Agricultural work. We adapt and advise accordingly.
