Ragsdale Liggett is one of the few law firms in North Carolina offering legal representation tailored for equine related matters. Dottie Burch, an avid horsewoman herself, has years of experience in this field and heads our Equine Law practice group. An emerging growth in North Carolina’s equine industry has inevitably led to a growing need for legal representation, whether in the corporate, real estate or litigation context.

We are uniquely skilled at preparing and reviewing boarding, leasing, training, breeding, instructor and other contracts, purchase and sale agreements, co-ownership, equine trade or donation agreements, liability waivers, employment, independent contractor or consulting agreements, estate planning, asset transfer and tax documents and real estate leases.

In addition, our equine lawyers prosecute and defend equine litigation involving contract disputes, zoning and land use disputes and personal injuries. We also provide risk management consultation.
