About Us

Who we are & what we do

What we do

We help thoroughbred industry businesses achieve better commercial outcomes. We do this by providing practical advice that combines legal and business expertise with a deep knowledge of how the thoroughbred industry works.

No matter what issue your thoroughbred industry business faces - from buying and selling a horse or stud through to day-to-day workplace and safety issues - we have the expertise to help you get the best result.

Our philosophy

We know that in the thoroughbred industry the best commercial results don’t usually come from taking a highly technical approach to resolving disputes and transactions. So we provide real world advice that operates within the framework of the law and also takes into account the realities of our industry.

We also know that, in our industry, it often pays for your advisers to be hands on. So we pride ourselves on being great negotiators, arbitrators and commercial advisers, as well as being great lawyers.

How we work

Commercial solutions

We know that legal advice is only valuable if it supports your business objectives and takes account of the realities in which you operate. That’s why we combine our skill as lawyers with our knowledge of the racing industry to reach a commercial solution, not just a legal one.

End-to-end service

We’re different to traditional law firms, who provide legal advice and then leave you to interpret and implement it. From buying a racehorse to buying a stud, from workplace issues to your personal legal issues, we can offer you end-to-end service that lets you be as involved or uninvolved in the process as you like.

Strategic advice

Our aim is to help your business achieve long-term success in an industry that’s often known for its boom and bust nature. So, while we’re focused on giving you practical assistance that you can apply today, we also look at the what our advice will mean for your business tomorrow and into the future.
