Richard Marsh, a consultant in the Disputes and Investigation group and former senior partner at Taylor Wessing, has honed considerable expertise on equine legal matters. Issues arising within this niche area include disputes about infertility insurance, and doping and drug tests. As co-head of Taylor Wessing’s Middle East group, Marsh also has many years’ experience of advising Middle Eastern clients on their racing investments. A recent case concerned ownership of shares in a racehorse: he resolved the issue through informal mediation. With a family background in training forming the foundation of his curiosity, Marsh truly understands the complex jargon and culture of the equine world.
