We have a wealth of experience in dealing with equine and animal insurance claims.
Claims of this type involve niche expertise, not least in relation to liability investigations. In addition to the usual causes of action, a sound knowledge of the Animals Act 1971 and associated case law is required.
Why use Trethowans?
Team members represented the successful party in the House of Lords in the leading case of Mirvahedy v Henley (2003) (the case which defined the responsibilities of keepers of animals under Section 2 of the Animals Act 1971). The team has subsequently developed a niche expertise in dealing with these equine and animal cases.
The insurance disputes team at Trethowans are one of only 12 teams in the whole of the UK to be recommended in The Chambers and Partners guide, with two of the team ranked as leading individuals in a list of only 36 lawyers nationally.
“Trethowans is diligent and determined in its approach to handling our high-value claims. This is blended with a real sense of being approachable and willingness to build a rapport with the client.”
We are members of the Equine and Animal Lawyers Association.
