It would have been hard to have lived in Yorkshire for over 20 years and not have encountered many farms, contractors and a variety of ancillary businesses.



Rob Sadler is generally accepted to be the leading insolvency practitioner for agricultural matters.

Whether beef, dairy, pig, poultry, sheep or arable; owned or tenanted; old Act or FBT; upland or lowland; agriculture or horticulture; Rob has come across most situations with all levels of debt and still found a solution.

Working with trusted partners within the agricultural industry, Rob can quickly pull together the right team to analyse your business, suggest improvements to production methods, value assets and then restructure and implement the plan. Some solutions do not involve a formal insolvency process, but where needed the full range of insolvency options are available to individuals, partnerships and companies.

Rob’s reputation has led to most of his work coming from word of mouth recommendations, over the farm gate. However, Rob has also gratefully accepted referrals from major feed suppliers, banks and financial institutions, agricultural consultants and professional advisers.

For farmers

We at Sadlers appreciate that when a farm or agricultural business is suffering from financial difficulties or cashflow problems, it can be an incredibly stressful time. A farmer doesn’t just live above the shop, he or she lives in their shop. Every assignment is, therefore, approached with confidentiality guaranteed and in a professional but sympathetic manner. Rob has worked closely with several agricultural support networks in the past to ensure that it’s not only a practical financial solution that is proposed but also one that fits with the farming family’s personal objectives.
