TOWN OR COUNTRY? NEW LITIGATION SPECIALIST BOOSTS HARRISON CLARK RICKERBYS’ TEAM
Covering both town and country, Esther Stirling, who has joined Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ successful litigation team in Worcester has a foot in both camps.
Esther, who has a strong reputation as a commercial and property litigator, also specialises in equine law. With a background in handling complex and high-value professional indemnity claims for large London insurers, she is also a member of the firm’s specialist equine law team and has in-depth experience of disputes involving agricultural land. Esther is a Fellow of the Agricultural Law Association.
She has considerable experience in handling all types of commercial litigation, negligence claims and property disputes. Challenges to wills and the actions of executors and trustees are part of her regular practice and she has represented clients in the Court of Protection.
A horse-owner herself, Esther has a particular passion for racing. She has been actively involved in point-to-point racing for many years and is a member of the Point to Point Owners and Riders Association and Women in Racing.
Richard Morgan, head of the firm’s litigation team, said: “I am delighted to be able to bring Esther on board – we have a very successful team, and I know that her specialist skills will enhance and extend that success.”
Esther said: “The fact that I can combine my professional and personal interests with one firm is a tribute to Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ breadth of expertise. I look forward very much to expanding that still further.”
