A law firm in Shropshire is to develop a new equine practice.
MFG Solicitors intend to increase the firm’s equine legal expertise this year and have appointed a specialist lawyer.
Hannah Farmer has joined the firm as an assistant solicitor, from Yorkshire solicitors Dickinson Dees.
“The equine sector plays an important economic role across the UK which means that the country’s breeders, owners and equestrian centres require the best possible legal advice. That’s something MFG can now offer,” said Hannah.
Hannah aims to carve out a niche equine practice for the firm. She will work alongside partners Sarah Baugh and Tom Devey within the firm’s rural and agricultural division.
Sarah Baugh said: “We already have an established rural affairs practice but Hannah’s appointment will strengthen the portfolio of services we offer rural clients.
“Building on our established rural reputation, Hannah will be working hard to promote our equine expertise in livery agreements, land acquisitions, bloodstock sales, disputes and many other areas.
