Richard Lissack QC of Outer Temple Chambers has become involved in the foot and mouth outbreak.
Lissack has been instructed by South West firm Thring Townsend in relation to a potential action for losses suffered by farmers as a result of last week's outbreak.
It is understood that Thring Townsend, instructed by the National Farmers’ Union (NFU), chose Lissack due to his experience after the last outbreak of foot and mouth disease.
He advised the campaign by a group of farmers to force the Government to carry out a public inquiry into that outbreak and the commercial litigation that followed the disease in 2005.
Thring Townsend’s agricultural litigation partner Peter Cusick, who instructed Lissack, said that the silk’s initial opinion is “encouraging”.
“We are undertaking further investigations and are in discussion with Richard and the NFU about how we can progress this matter accordingly,” said Cusick.
“As we have always thought, and Queen Counsel agrees, the claim for losses, arising from the movement ban, is just, fair and reasonable.”
