The equine specialists at Harrison Clark Rickerbys are delighted to be able to extend a helping hand with free legal advice for horse lovers who are members of the British Horse Society (BHS), as the firm will now provide the BHS’ legal helpline.
The new service will enable more horse owners, breeders and riders to access the specialist team’s skills – they are all involved in the equestrian world themselves, and the firm already offers a similar service to members of British Dressage.
Ruth Coupe, who leads the team, said: “Because we know how important their horses are to BHS members from our own experience, we combine legal expertise with a deep understanding of the equestrian world. This puts us in an ideal position to support them when they encounter difficulties and need advice.”
Emma Day, the BHS’ director of membership, said: “This is great news for The British Horse Society and our 91,000 members. We look forward to the law firm providing the best possible advice and a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”
The helpline is open to all BHS Gold, Friend, Life and Founder members either by phone or by email. Member should call the number on the back of their membership card or can email firstname.lastname@example.org, in both cases giving name and membership number.
The service is always available and offers half an hour of free legal advice on each legal matter raised; those issues need not relate to horses, though the team handling the calls has that specialist expertise.
Harrison Clark Rickerbys has 400 staff and partners based at offices in Cheltenham, the Wye Valley, Hereford, Worcester, Birmingham and the Thames Valley, who provide a complete spectrum of legal services to both business and private clients, regionally and nationwide. The firm also has a number of highly successful teams specialising in individual market sectors, including health and social care, education, agricultural and rural affairs, hospitality and leisure, defence, security and the forces, and construction.
