Equine law involves the handling of many types of horse-related issues, including (but not limited to):
- Representing stables, competitors, trainers, and associations in the equine industry
- Contract negotiation and drafting for equine-related transactions such as sales, leases, boarding, and training
- Equine-related litigation and alternative methods of dispute resolution such as mediation and arbitration
- Representation handling cases involving commercial code, breach of contract, and misrepresentation & fraud as well as transactions including partnerships, sale and lease
Equine law is unique due to the legal nature of horses themselves. Depending upon the purpose, a horse can be considered livestock, personal property, a vehicle, or even an athlete.
Equine Law Questionnaire
Please fill out the form below the instructions
Horse ownership and equine activities present a large and interesting variety of issues, opportunities, and challenges for individuals, families, and businesses. They can range from purchases and sales, ownership, veterinary issues, barn ownership and management, liability, business/real estate/tax issues, and lawsuits, and no two cases are alike. Our law firm is equipped to guide you through these types of matters.
The informal Equine Law Questionnaire below is intended to provide us a glimpse into your needs so we can help you assess, plan, and prepare to handle your matter.
Our firm offers two alternatives for you to enlist our help in your equine transaction or other situation. Firstly, we can meet with you in-person (or by telephone or even by internet-based conference) for a one-hour consultation. Our fee for a consultation is between $250-$300 (depending on complexity). In advance of that consultation, you will need to fill-out and submit the Equine Law Questionnaire below. Please complete all the Questionnaire sections which apply to you.
Secondly, you can have a free telephone discussion with one of our equine law attorneys about your matter. In order to have a free telephone conversation, you will need to fill-out and submit all the sections of the questionnaire which apply to you.
Once you have completed the questionnaire, please click on the button that says “Submit.” One of our equine law attorneys will call you within 2 business days, and will spend a few minutes discussing your situation. We do not charge a fee for this initial telephone call.
If you prefer, you can return your completed questionnaire to us by facsimile (407-578-2181), or you can drop it off at one of our offices, and an attorney will call you within 2 business days of receipt for your free telephone review.
We look forward to learning about you and your equine-related needs, and hope to have an opportunity to work with you.
Please note that neither the holding of a consultation, the completion of the above questionnaire, nor merely contacting Bogin, Munns & Munns in the manner that you have creates an attorney-client relationship with you. Bogin, Munns & Munns cannot represent you until the firm knows there would not be a conflict of interest, and the firm determines that it is otherwise able to accept the engagement. Any information or documents sent prior to your executing an engagement letter and submission of any required retainer deposit cannot be treated as protected by an attorney client privilege and may be determined by a court to not constitute protected information of any nature. We will only become your attorneys once you have signed an engagement letter, and our firm’s fees and costs have been paid. Nothing herein is intended as legal advice, nor should you consider it as such unless otherwise directed. It is intended only as general information with respect to a question that you have raised regarding this legal matter. You should not act upon any information herein without retaining professional legal counsel.
