What does an equine attorney do?

Aside from having profound knowledge of the horse industry and laws that relate to the industry, an equine lawyer draft, review, and negotiate contracts in a variety of situations used by both professionals and non-professionals in the horse industry… a few examples are listed above.

An equine attorney can help save you money due to their knowledge of the rules governing the sport and industry. They are also up-to-date on laws and how they work, which is beneficial for someone who’s not well versed in the laws in the equine industry. Hiring an attorney who is unfamiliar with the industry would have to spend additional time learning how the industry works and may overlook important factors when it comes to drafting a release or contract, or settling your case.
