Catherine Hallam, head of the Burges Salmon’s Family Law team, has appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Farming Today programme.

The feature focused on the issue of divorce for farming families and business partnerships. Farming Today, in light of the United Nations Year of the Family Farm, is focusing throughout the week on different UK family farms and the events that shape them.

Catherine provided commentary about some of the key issues that farmers can face through divorce including the impact on farm businesses, the dangers of using the court system rather than negotiated settlements, prenuptial agreements, protection of farming assets and marrying into a farming family.

The programme was first broadcast on Wednesday 15 January.
