Sarah is a solicitor practising in both insurance and regulatory law.
Sarah has a BSc (Hons) in Equine Studies and prior to her legal career worked with horses in various disciplines. She now specialises in equine law.
Sarah acts on behalf of clients in litigious matters relating to civil claims, including the areas of personal injury, public liability, equine and animal matters. She also assists Kelvin Farmaner in his insurance matters, both claims and disputes.
Her equine and animal matters involve civil claims relating to purchase and sale disputes, riding accident and horse accident claims, veterinary negligence, negligent care claims and Animals Act 1971 matters.
Sarah advises clients on compliance with regulatory law. She works closely with Sarah Wheadon covering all aspects of regulatory law such as health and safety, data protection, environmental, statutory nuisance claims and food safety.
Sarah also advises clients on compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation and responses to subject access requests.
Her motoring defence work includes (but is not limited to) advising on the offences of careless or dangerous driving and driving whilst using a mobile phone.
Away from the office
Away from the office, Sarah spends a lot of her time outdoors with her horses. She is a keen rider in the competitive discipline of Eventing and competes at both Affiliated and Unaffiliated events. In recent years she bought a young horse which she has broken in and produced with her trainer and they are now out competing successfully. Sarah still has regular training sessions (there is always room for improvement!) when she is not competing.
She also shares this passion with her sister, so if she is not competing herself she will be out providing support to her sister by being her groom for the day.
Away from the horses, Sarah also has a keen interest in all things related to food and enjoys cooking. This will normally be combined with having friends over for dinner or going out to eat, usually at a local pub near a fire place.
