Aria Grace Equine Law to Partner With Spinal Research

Aria Grace Equine Law is delighted to be partnering with Spinal Research in 2024. As a Community Interest Company, Aria Grace Law CIC donates all firm profits to charity – and for the Equine Law team this means that 5% of all equine law fees will be donated to Spinal Research at our year end.

In addition to contributing financially, we are excited to work with Spinal Research to grow their profile with both our equine and broader commercial and corporate clientele at Aria Grace Law CIC. Research into a cure for paralysis is at a turning point in 2024, with tangible developments imminent. Spinal cord injuries and related conditions (including Parkinson’s disease, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, stroked and dementia) affect a broad range of people – but are a particular risk for equestrians.

Jodie Seddon, Aria Grace Equine Law, commented:

“All riders are aware of the danger of spinal cord injuries, but few appreciate how close we are to function-restoring therapeutics being widely available. Supporting charities is a cornerstone of Aria Grace Law CIC, and we hope that by joining forces with Spinal Research we can help them to achieve their vision of beating paralysis.”

Tara Stewart, Chair of Spinal Research, commented:

“We’re absolutely delighted to be chosen by Aria Grace Equine Law as their charity partner. I sustained my own spinal cord injury from a simple fall out hacking and we all know other riders who have been injured. For many years people like us were told there was no hope of recovery but this year the first function-restoring therapy for chronic spinal injury in history is due to launch and others are waiting in the wings. What we need now is the money to place those treatments in the hands of the injured and partnerships like this help us achieve that.”
