Victoria von Wachter and 5 Essex Court Partner with the Equestrian Employers Association

As a benefit of EEA membership 5 Essex Court, who offer a wealth of experience in equestrian employment law and disputes, will provide EEA members with a free legal helpline.  The partnership is led by Victoria von Wachter, barrister at 5 Essex Court Chambers who said; 

“As a lifelong horse rider and owner of Godington Stud, I understand first-hand the challenges employers face within the equestrian industry. I’ve specialised in equestrian and employment law for over 20 years and know that addressing issues from the start can mean the difference between resolving a problem quickly or allowing it to become a time consuming and expensive experience.

 5 Essex Court and I are really pleased to offer this free 30 minute legal advice service for EEA members to help employers resolve any disputes quickly and get back to what we love – working with horses.”

 The EEA is delighted to welcome 5 Essex Court to the inaugural Equestrian Employers Conference, which takes place on 25 February.

 Charles Apthorp, an accomplished barrister, will share his considerable experience surrounding providing staff accommodation and protecting yourself, whilst Victoria will present on future proofing your business, and leads a discussion alongside international event rider, Francis Whittington about what happens when it all goes wrong.
