As equine solicitors in Staffordshire, our specialist equine lawyers combine legal knowledge with practical experience to deliver a tailored service to our clients. Our membership of the Equine and Animal Lawyers Association not only means that we can offer the best possible solutions for individual owners, dealers, riding schools, livery yards, horse related professionals and online businesses, but our wealth of knowledge allows us to draft a full range of equestrian agreements while taking into consideration the intricacies of the industry.

Horse owners and especially equestrian businesses are facing a heavier burden of regulation and legislation than ever before with increased claims under the Sale of Goods Act and the Animals Act. The equine world has its own language, customs and nature of disputes which means it’s essential to use an equine lawyer who can apply the law realistically and sensibly to equestrian issues and have knowledge of the equestrian community.

Whatever the nature of your dispute, our equine solicitors in Staffordshire can provide industry specific advice to reach the best possible outcome in a timely manner. With a wealth of knowledge in equine law, we understand the complex terminology used and can quickly identify the key issues involved.
