Expertise and advice specific to grouse moors and sporting rights

Wrigleys act for a large number of grouse moor owners and other clients involved with sporting rights (whether owned, leased or within a syndicate or joint venture).

Agricultural Lawyers With Practical Understanding

Our agricultural lawyers here have a good practical grasp of shoots and the nuts and bolts involved, which is beneficial in putting effective documentation in place.

We pass on this experience to clients and agents through helpful pointers outside the normal legal remit, in particular for those buying or selling a grouse moor for the first time.

In addition to the property aspects, wider advice is often required, including:

  • Ownership and tax arrangements - many moors are owned through companies or an LLP;
  • Sporting leases and joint venture structures; or
  • Transfer of shoot equipment, employees and other business assets.

Of Jonathan Attey "He's very knowledgeable, calm and professional. He demystified a lot of the complexities of the transaction for us."


"They aren't just technically brilliant, they're also bright and fully-faceted individuals with tremendous social competence."
