South West firm Thring Townsend was instructed yesterday (9 August) by the National Farmers’ Union (NFU) in relation to a potential action for losses suffered by farmers as a result of last week's foot and mouth outbreak.
The head of Thring Townsend's agricultural litigation team Peter Cusick has been retained by the union to carry out preliminary investigatory work to prepare the ground for a claim resulting from the outbreak, which is believed to have originated from a research facility in Pirbright, Surrey.
A statement from the NFU said advisers from Thring Townsend would be contacting affected members to discuss the key legal issues with them.
Cusick said: " We are delighted to have been appointed by the NFU with whom we already have an excellent relationship as their panel solicitors for 11 counties."
Thring Townsend is best known for its agricultural and private client practices. Last week (30 July) The Lawyer exclusively revealed that it was entering the London market having struck a merger agreement with Westminster-based Lee & Pembertons.
