Lincoln House Barristers, Richard Dawson and Sarah Magill, are instructed for separate Defendants in an allegation of carrying on an unlicensed business selling animals as pets (often referred to as puppy farming). This is a private prosecution, brought by the Animal Protection Society.
These prosecutions are expected to increase in frequency following a significant rise in the demand for puppies during the first Covid-19 lockdown, last year, which caused the price of dogs to climb rapidly.
Richard and Sarah are expert trial lawyers, specialising in complex crime, regulatory law and professional misconduct; defending corporate and individual Defendants facing regulatory investigation and prosecution. Sarah is also appointed to the specialist regulatory prosecution panel.
