Second International Equine Law Congress

DKLM have recently entered into a collaboration with with Schelstraete Equine Law and last week Laura Reeves gave a presentation at the 2nd International Equine Law Congress in Amsterdam. Industry professionals and lawyers from across the world came together to discuss and explore the legal aspects of horse breeding and trade.

With the recent developments in horse breeding, including ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection), various legal issues are arising and have become the topic of heated debate between various nations.

The new animal health law (Regulation (EU) 2016/429) lays down further rules in relation to the movement of animals and germinal products between member and non-member states, with the aim of preventing the spread of animal diseases. The requirements for official animal health certification are not intended to be used as proof of ownership.

More than ever, it is extremely important that contracts for the sale of horses and their germinal products are properly considered and drafted to try to avoid expensive litigation.

This international collaboration brings together the best of our respective expertise to provide our clients with specialist advice and assistance.
