Legal Advice for Animal Offences

As more agencies have become involved with investigation and prosecution in this area, so the need for specialist advice and assistance has increased.

We deal with the full spectrum of offences, including:-

  • RSPCA-led prosecutions relating to animal welfare. This covers offences prosecuted under the Animal Welfare Act, such as causing unnecessary suffering;
  • Offences under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, including those relating to trapping and snaring;
  • Dangerous Dog cases, including dogs said to be out of control and possession of a prohibited breed;
  • Regulatory matters, such as those relating to riding schools and animal breeding.

Our service covers all aspects of the process, from interviews under caution to trials in the Magistrates and Crown Court. Whilst you will receive the same level of expert care in every instance, we understand that each case is different and our approach reflects this.

We also handle appeal matters and any professional misconduct proceedings which may be linked to the case.
