HRJ Foreman Laws Solicitors extends team to offer insolvency and equine legal services to Herts residents

August 2022 – HRJ Foreman Laws Solicitors is delighted to welcome Chris Hook to its litigation legal team as a Senior Associate Solicitor.  Chris will be based at the firm’s Hitchin office in Hertfordshire.    In addition to his litigation and insolvency expertise, Chris is a leading equine solicitor. He brings this specialist knowledge of equine law to the firm.

Chris said, “I’m excited to join the team at HRJ Foreman Laws Solicitors in Hertfordshire. I was attracted to the firm for its ability to provide a full range of legal services to my existing clients.  Our approach to business is similar; client focused, tailored and transparent.  It’s also an honour to bring my knowledge of equine law to Hertfordshire equestrians.  As far as we know, it’s the first time there has been an equine law specialist in the firm since it was founded in 1591.  So the service is long overdue in Hitchin, which I’ve read was occupied during the 7th century by the Hicca tribe, ‘the people of the horse’!

Hertfordshire businesses and individuals can contact Chris for legal advice on personal and corporate insolvency. He works with office-holders, creditors, companies and directors on all aspects of insolvency and restructuring. His expertise comes from training at a leading insolvency and restructuring firm along with extensive experience acting for prominent clients in the industry.

Chris can also be contacted for litigation and dispute resolution advice. He will advise clients through the complex area of civil and commercial litigation. He has a strong track record of resolving disputes as swiftly and cost-effectively as possible.  He has experience working on a wide range of disputes from commercial to equine, property, construction, partnership and shareholder disputes.

Chris’ specialist knowledge of equine law is the result of his legal expertise combined with his personal interest and involvement in the equine industry. He has twice won the Agriculture Solicitor of the Year Award by Finance Monthly for his equine law work. He will be a valuable legal advisor to any riders, horse owners, breeders and trainers in Hertfordshire and the surrounding areas.   He can advise on all the legal aspects of buying and owning a horse, such as horse purchase disputes, co-ownership agreements, racehorse syndicate agreements and jockey retainer or equine sponsorship agreements.
