Unfortunately, however, all too many horse sales culminate in costly and drawn-out lawsuits, often because the horse turns out to have significant issues that were not discovered or disclosed at the time of purchase. Disputes such as these are generally resolved at hearings in the ordinary courts or arbitral tribunals and often end with the parties reaching an amicable settlement.
Regardless of whether you are a professional or a private horse dealer and regardless of whether you are involved in a national or international sale, we can assist you with both the sale itself and with any subsequent lawsuit, should this become a reality. With our practical know-how and professional specialist experience, we can quickly spot any potential pitfalls in the contract. We also know how lawsuits in this particular area are conducted and can walk you through the process.
If a lawsuit is unavoidable, we can assist either the buyer or the seller from start to finish. We always strive to find a reasonable and amicable settlement of the case – not only because equine legal cases can be lengthy, costly and drawn-out processes, but also out of consideration for the fact that the case involves a living creature.
