Naples, Florida (PRWEB) September 19, 2013
W. David Shearer, Jr. today announced his practice as an arbitrator and mediator in equine law. Born, raised, and educated in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Shearer brings to his practice impressive credentials and experience in the area of equine law and, thus, to serving as a mediator and arbitrator in the equine industry.
Shearer's extensive knowledge of the equine industry is two-fold: (1) his involvement gained in owing and racing thoroughbred horses; and (2) through his family's involvement in the owning, breeding and showing of American Saddle horses. As such, he has been involved as both an owner and spectator throughout most of his adult life. An associate with various syndications involved in thoroughbred racing, Mr. Shearer is uniquely aware and knowledgeable about bloodlines and pedigrees as well as performance and racing ability.
In his legal experience, W. David Shearer has represented owners, breeders and competitors in a variety of equine issues, including disputes in contracts, breeding, sterility, and other equine-related issues. His personal and professional experiences allow him to effectively mediate or arbitrate a breadth of issues such as licensing issues, facing infractions, exclusion issues and drug/medication charges among others.
Shearer’s ability to deal with equine contract disputes extends from boarding arrangements and lease agreements to breeding contracts and embryo transfer agreements. He realizes that persons in the horse industry are heavily invested in their animals both on emotional and financial levels. His general experience in contact, tort and administrative law underlies his more specific knowledge and experience with the equine industry.
Mr. Shearer provides alternative dispute resolution services from a long-standing association with the horse industry. In May of 2013, he attended his 50th Kentucky Derby in Louisville, KY. He brings his love of the industry to the negotiation table.
