Carys Wilson, one of our partners here at Agri Advisor, has been awarded a Fellowship of the Agricultural Law Association (ALA) and has been presented the ALA Chairman’s Prize for gaining the highest marks in the 2016 cohort of Fellows.
The head of Agri Advisor’s Property and Planning team, Carys is based in our head office in Pumsaint, Carmarthenshire. She joined the firm in 2014 and has been practicing law since 2005.
The Agricultural Law Association runs the Fellowship programme annually to provide its members with specific training in areas of law relevant to rural practice in all professions and which are not taught at institutional level or in the various professional qualification courses.
Carys Wilson said, “I am very grateful to the Agricultural Law Association for this accolade and am proud to have become a Fellow of the Association. We now have five ALA Fellows amongst our staff at Agri Advisor. Manon Tomos also gained her fellowship last year whilst she was training to become a solicitor with us and has since qualified. This is proof that our clients at Agri Advisor are getting the best service possible when they come to us for help and assistance.”
Carys lives with her young family on a dairy farm and has significant experience in all aspects of agricultural, commercial and residential property. A fluent Welsh speaker, Carys advises on matters such as property acquisition and sales, property investment, farm business tenancy agreements, renewable energy, commercial agreements, partnership agreements, share farming agreements and contract farming agreements.
Mike Holland from the Agricultural Law Association said, “Congratulations to Carys for passing the examination and becoming one of the ALA’s Fellows of the 2016 course. The Fellowship is recognition of the high level of competence of an individual in the areas of Landlord & Tenant, Tax, Trusts and Property Law affecting rural land and property and she joins an elite group of 128 Fellows of the Association.”
