How can we help you?

A passion for the sector

Many of our equine solicitors are equestrians themselves. Our litigation specialists are headed up by Alison Goodwin, who has ridden at national level in both eventing and dressage, as well as spending a number of years working in an international eventing yard before embarking upon her legal career.

Elsewhere in the team we have horse owners, racing enthusiasts and point-to-point riders, all combining their passion for horses with their specialism in corporate law. This gives us a genuine empathy with our clients, who turn to us feeling confident that we understand the issues that are important to them, and the unique challenges they face.

Equine - Ruth MacCarthy

I would just like to thank Harrison Clark Rickerbys for the helpful and professional step by step advice given during a livery non-payment dispute. I used the free advice service provided with my British Dressage membership and was subsequently given the confidence to pursue and recover the debt that was owed to me. I am very grateful for the prompt support and would highly recommend to anyone within the equine industry. Levi Hunt Equestrian Services.
