Equine Law & Horse Racing
The horse industry in Ireland contributes hundreds of millions to the Irish economy every year with over 17,000 people employed in the Thoroughbred sector alone. Patrick Ward& Co. are the chosen Solicitors for the Irish Horse Trainers Association which is the representative body for all race horse trainers in the country.
We have also acted on behalf of many of the countries leading jockeys in both a personal capacity and in disciplinary hearings before the Turf Club. Our reputation in the horse racing industry has resulted us in achieving landmark results in both the Turf Club and in the Courts and our clients have included leading trainers like Aidan O’ Brien, owners such as the Niarchos Family and Jockeys like Barry Geraghty.
