Richard Crane

Partner - Business Services

I have always had a passion for farming, managing land and business. I am fortunate to have always been part of a farming family. I am always on the look out for new ideas – and people – to help my clients’ – and my own – farming businesses and asset management.

Richard Crane is one of our Partners and joined us in 2016. Richard advises estate and property-based businesses and the families who own them. He has been a partner leading advisory teams in the industry for nearly 25 years, having previously been a partner at Deloitte LLP for 17 years, leading the Food and Agricultural practice.

His expert knowledge of farms and estates has been honed both professional and personally. Being a farmer and landowner himself, he can offer specialist advice on tax, finance and practical matters to landowning private clients who may also have businesses in the agricultural sector.

Who said no one was born to accountancy? Well, Richard Crane has accountancy in his blood – his maternal great grandfather was a founding partner of Deloitte.

Richard has become increasingly involved in a London City Livery Company: The Worshipful Company of Farmers and expects to become Master in 2024.
