Protecting the lifeblood of your business

‘Your success depends on both skill and luck, but sometimes you need a helping hand too. Thanks to Royds Withy King, you can call on legal advice for jockeys whenever you need it’

A jockey’s career is a tough one. You face physical demands every day, and your time is at a premium. If you need help with a legal matter, we can provide advice and jockey legal representation to make sure you can carry on concentrating on your career.

Jockey legal representation

An error on the racecourse can put your career on hold or even lead to a BHA disciplinary or licensing hearing. As experts in the equine world, we offer legal advice for jockeys to help you get your career back on track. We will work with you, your agent and the Professional Jockeys Association (PJA) to get you a prompt and fair result. We can help in a number of other ways too:

  • Racing sponsorship
    Sponsorship is a good way to finance your costs, although you will of course have to make sure the contract works for you. As experts in jockey legal representation, we can give you advice to protect your rights and secure your future.
  • Protecting your wealth
    Your financial position can change with every racing season. We can help you manage your assets to make sure your finances are sound. You can look to us to help safeguard your future, and we can also put plans in place to manage your wealth as your life changes in the future. From estate planning to wills and probate, we can provide a seamless service for you.
  • Moving home
    Your life is taken up with racing and riding. You can’t let anything compromise your work, even when it comes to something like moving home. We can help take the pressure off, taking care of the legal aspects of the move and giving specialist advice on rural property purchases or sales. So you can stay focused on what you do best.
  • Help with family issues
    You are incredibly busy and have many demands on your time. Sometimes your family and personal life can suffer as a result. If you need help with a family issue, we understand the racing industry and the environment you work in. Our family team can give you the prompt advice you need.
