Equestrian Lawyer

Equestrian law covers multiple legal disciplines regarding horses. Each equestrian entrepreneur or horse owner, from time to time, needs to deal with legal and tax issues, and with rules of the (competition) sport and breeding. Equestrian Lawyer links the specialist knowledge of, for example, the labour law to the specific knowledge on horses. This way the client gets for every case the lawyer he or she needs. After all, the dismissal of a stable hand requires different knowledge and experience than the extension of a stable.


In addition, one of the specialties of Equestrian Lawyer is the set-up national and international corporate and tax structures, purchases of a stable and/or horses by multiple shareholders and/or financing in the broader sense. Are you planning to buy a stable or a sport horse, Equestrian Lawyer guides a this complex process from a to z.
