A Staffordshire solicitor has started her own law firm, dealing solely with equine related cases.
Jacqui Fulton, formerly head of the equine law department and an associate of Blythe Liggins Solicitors, Warwickshire, started up her own business Jacqui Fulton Equine Law to provide a specialist service to horse owners.
“I felt it was time this huge industry had a dedicated law firm that people can turn to for help, representation and advice,” Ms Fulton said.
A solicitor advocate, Ms Fulton can represent clients in hearings up to and including the High Court.
Her workload will cover veterinary and purchase disputes, loan and competition contracts, riding and horse accident claims and representing riders in the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
“Riders, competitors, breeders and livery yard owners need to know the solicitors they employ really understand every aspect of the horse world. This is crucial if they are to be represented properly,” Ms Fulton said.
A horse owner, competitor and livery yard manager herself, Ms Fulton has competed her dressage horses up to Prix St George level, and breeds Hanoverians for dressage.
