Tim Ryan, Partner at Warners said: “We are delighted to have been appointed to the panel and we look forward to working with the NFU and providing legal advice and support to its members. We are extremely proud of the history that we have in this sector and the long established relationships we have built with farmers and farming families over the years.” Tim added “The appointment comes hot on heels of the news that we have retained our top rank in both leading legal directories, Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners, for the second year running.”
