Naples, FL (PRWEB) December 08, 2013
W. David Shearer, Jr. announced today a focus on equine law in his mediation and arbitration practice. Shearer brings to his practice not only his four decades of experience as a Civil Trial Attorney, but also his extensive knowledge of and experience with the equine industry.
Horse owners and breeders are heavily invested in their animals on an emotional and financial level. Kentucky born and educated, Shearer, a former horse owner and member of a family invested in the horse industry, recognizes the complex business relationship, the financial stakes, and the diverse legal needs of horse owners, stable owners, breeders trainers, race track owners, para-mutual clerks and equitation instructors.
Equine law involves the entire horse family, including all types of horses and their related activities. No two equine owners or interested entities become involved in equine related pursuits for the same reason. Disputes may encompass a range of legal matters including but not limited to contract disputes, liability insurance disputes, sterility disputes, and equine breeding disputes.
Effective dispute resolution in the equine industry requires that an arbitrator/mediator understand the "language” and the specialized trade practices that are specific to the horse industry. Shearer, Kentucky born, educated, and experienced, possesses those areas of expertise.
W. David Shearer's broad-based legal experience and horse-related experienced allow him to successfully mediate or arbitrate settlements related to the equine industry.
