As the UK’s only not-for-profit law company, Aria Grace Law CIC donates 100% of profits to charity and was named “Law Company of the Year” at The Lawyer Awards 2023.
Aria Grace Equine Law is led by Jodie Seddon who, over the last 4 years, has developed an extensive equine law advisory practice (with Chambers’ ranking in 2022 and 2023), combining her legal expertise with her equestrian knowledge to advise all types of industry participants in respect of their commercial and corporate activities.
