Shropshire-based law firm MFG Solicitors have signalled their intention to grow the firm’s equine legal offering in 2012 with the appointment of a specialist lawyer.
Hannah Farmer has joined the Telford firm as an assistant solicitor from Yorkshire solicitors Dickinson Dees.
An experienced horsewoman, Hannah will play a pivotal role in carving out a niche equine practice for the firm as they look to develop their already reputable rural services.
Yorkshire-born Hannah will work alongside partners Sarah Baugh and Tom Devey within the firm’s rural and agricultural division.
Commenting on Hannah’s appointment, Sarah Baugh said: “We already have an established rural affairs practice but Hannah’s appointment will strengthen the portfolio of services we offer rural clients.
“She comes to MFG with a wide personal knowledge of the equine sector. That familiarity will be vital as we look to grow our equine practice through a tailored range of legal services and professional guidance.
“Building on our established rural reputation, Hannah will be working hard to promote our equine expertise in livery agreements, land acquisitions, bloodstock sales, disputes and many other areas.
“The next 12 months are shaping up to be a year full of opportunities for the firm and our growth plans.”
Hannah Farmer added: “I have been given a fantastic opportunity here at MFG. I am looking forward to playing my part in establishing the firm’s name across the equine industry, whilst also contributing to the general growth of the rural affairs side.
“The equine sector plays an important economic role across the UK which means that the country’s breeders, owners and equestrian centres require the best possible legal advice. That’s something MFG can now offer.”
